J-Roman Club licensed the light novel series in English and described the plot as:
After dying of exhaustion in Japan, Dahlia is reborn into a world filled with magic. Raised by a master magical instrument maker, she develops a passion for the craft and becomes engaged to her father’s apprentice. But before her father could see her married, he suddenly died. As if that wasn’t enough, the day before their wedding, her fiancé announces that he’s in love – but not with her! Dahlia finally realizes that she has to live for herself. She vows to be her own woman from now on and devote herself to her craft, even if it’s not quite the peaceful life she’d hoped for! From a chance encounter with a knight to starting your own company, there are many challenges on the horizon. But this young craftswoman is no longer a shrinking violet – she is a dahlia and ready to bloom.
