Daughter of Regals is a collection of short stories by Stephen R.
Donaldson including one which involves two brothers who encounter
"The Lady in White" who lives in a forest reputed to hold dark
secrets. But the Lady in White has her own secrets...
An engaging short story with more than one twist at the end.
"Her form was robed all in whitest samite, and her head was crowned
as if in bronze by a wealth of red-yellow hair that fell unbound to
her shoulders, and her eyes were like the heavens of the night,
star bright and fathomless, and her voice was the music that makes
men laugh or weep, according to their courage. Her lips were full
for kisses but not too full for loveliness, and her breasts make
themselves known through her robe like the need for love, and her
skin had that alabaster softness that cries to be caressed."
