Rogan is handsome and talented; he possesses a singing voice that blows away all who listen. Madeleine is finally growing into her looks. She has what he Aunt Kate call glamour (from the same root as grammar as it is a knowledge, something that can be learned). Both Rogan and Madeleine are given roles in the school's play: Twelfth Night. During the rehearsal and performances, changes will occur to their relationship.
Elizabeth Hand is part romance. However, it is far more than that as itr examines themes of family, betrayal, duty, and talent.
