The third volume of The Sharing Knife series, Passage takes up with Fawn and Dag visiting with her family. Dag's people, the Lakewalkers, have not declared their marriage void but they haven't accepted it either. And even among Fawn's farmer family and neighbors there is resistance to accepting this Lakewalker husband of hers. So they set off to see the world and to learn more about Dag's new gifts and each other. However, their first setback comes when Fawn's brother, Whit, joins them for the first leg of the journey south. Next thing they know they're gathering followers and becoming the center of something that is a mix of Lakewalker, Farmer and Riverworker as the adventure continues. From official release/information:
From publicity material: Picking up where things left off in The Sharing Knife: Legacy, Fawn and Dag seek passage on a river boat heading toward the sea. They inadvertently acquire a number of followers: Fawn's irrepressible brother; a pair of Lakewalker apprentices; a farmer boy Dag accidentally -- and magically -- beguiles; and a young riverboat captain searching for her father and his fiancée, who mysteriously vanished on the river nearly a year earlier. As the motley band continues downstream, Fawn and Dag encounter bandits, magic, prejudice both within and without the group -- and a new understanding of marriage, family, and the differences between farmers and Lakewalkers.
