She's strong and experienced -- and she has Penric. By this time--some
sixteen years after Pen faced down the White God for her--their
relationship is strong enough to support both of them.

Gwynne: They've certainly been through a lot together, and probably
had more god-contact than most other people in their world. I love the
way people in Thasalon react to the Blessed with enormous and genuine
respect - no rules apply, please sir do whatever you want... But Pen is
very matter-of-fact about it all. He's seen more saints than most people
do, as well. His attitude is more that they're co-workers.
