Story

...I sold my future in exchange for protecting what is precious to me.

A girls' academy that only girls from respectable families could attend. For Isabella York, who attends it under a "contract" with her father, this beautiful place where white camellias bloom is nothing more than a prison...

Before Isabella, who had lost all hope and expectations for her future, Violet Evergarden, hired as her tutor, appears.[1]
