Illness and financial problems has swept through Alia's town and she isn't content to sit back and do nothing. She knows her father will marry her off, probably for political alliance, and the relationship with her brothers has become strained since her mother died. She is quick-witted and wants to do her share of helping her kingdom. So she disguises herself as a boy to make the journey with a passing caravan to the mysterious incense lands of the south.
