Book of a Thousand Days by Hale
When Lady Saren refuses to marry, she and her maid, Dashti, are locked in a tower with just a tiny flap open to the outside world. As food runs low and the weather changes, it is all Dashti can do to make them comfortable in their dark prison. Then Saren's suitors arrive, and she orders Dashti to speak to them. Impersonating Saren is a crime punishable by death, but Dashti must play the role to save them both from the tower. Is it possible that even a low-born maid can be a heroine and find true love?
