Martha
Martha's determined to prove that she's not just the practical type. She's a mine of fascinating gossip, she'll have you know. Want to know who's got the best sheep? Whose orchard is thriving? No? Oh, never mind, then. Still, she's determined to show the world that it's entirely possible to boil grain and season lamb while pondering the universe. But will the Arkmates respond or will they just like her for her cooking?
