Hope Foley
Stunningly beautiful (by local elite standards), golden blonde hair, wide blue eyes, fine figure, recently presented at Court in London but has now returned to Marland where she is regarded as the catch of the season, or of any season.

However, she is more interested in following her brother Anthony into reckless scrapes than in becoming a sedate young bride, though she knows that is her expected destiny.

Like him, she is a good rider, hunter and shot though she has not had his experience in the mountainous frontier.
