Twenty years after her parents find love through The Selection, Eadlyn is having complications going through the process herself. She has narrowed her suitors down to an elite group, but making the final decision is turning out to be more difficult than anticipated. Eadlyn is forced to balance her fierce independence, newfound desire for love, duty as future queen, and unrest among the people of the kingdom, all while in the public eye. As her attention is pulled in these directions, she learns that not everyone around her can be trusted and that the best course of action may be to allow for more independence, both for herself and her people. Ultimately, she decides to follow her heart rather than the rules of The Selection.
