Winter 1331, and the survivors of Sir John Swale's butchered family must confront their past and decide where their loyalties lie: in Scotland, Margaret Swale has married the son of the Scottish knight who murdered her kin, and now faces the prospect of losing her husband as he is summoned to fight against her native land. In a far-off priory in Cumberland, her brother Richard Swale battles against the memories of blood and slaughter that have haunted him for thirteen years.
