Shannon Hale Synopsis: Book of a Thousand Days is a standalone title by Shannon Hale. When Dashti, a maid, and Lady Saren, her mistress, are shut in a tower for seven years for Saren’s refusal to marry a man she loathes, the two prepare for a very long and dark imprisonment. As food runs low and the days go from broiling hot to freezing cold, it is all Dashti can do to keep them fed and comfortable. But the arrival outside the tower of Saren’s two suitors – one welcome, and the other not so much – brings both hope and great danger, and Dashti must make the desperate choices of a girl whose life is worth more than she knows.
