Rosalinda Fitzroy wakes up to a new world. She was put into a chemically inchanced sleep called Stasis sixty-two years ago, sleeping through what has become known as The Dark Times, sleeping through the change of the world. And she is awoken by a kiss to find that nothing is the same. Her parents have both died. The boy she loved has died. And Rose is the heir to an interplanetary empire that's been running just fine without her for years. And to face all this Rose turns to painting, the thing she always really loved to do. She paints scenes from her Stasis, pictures of Xavier, the boy she lost, all the while adjusting, as much as she can, to this new world... maybe even falling in love. But, though she may be healing on the face of it, a much darker story is hidden and Rose has to face it, especially when her life becomes at risk.
