From publisher blurb:
The nail that sticks out gets hammered down
Duty, honor, structure. It binds us all together towards our divine purpose and keeps order, but it rules a man from birth until death, and it favors some while demanding from others.
If the rules could be bent for just this one time, if the gods could shift their affections only slightly, we could fid some small measure more than fate has set aside for us.
That is, of course, if everyone else stays in their place afterward...
