The year is AD1290. A mission for Pope Nicholas precipitates Venetian nobleman Giovanni into love and adventure at the Persian court.
Persia’s Mongol ruler, Arghun, great-great-grandson of Genghis Khan, is dying. But there are enemies who would hasten his death for political reasons, while others would sacrifice his wife Nadia for personal ones.
Nadia, beautiful and talented, victim of a barbaric Mongol marriage law, desires only to protect her son Hassan until he reaches manhood. Torn between her duty as a wife and a love that defies the hatred of the age, she must discover the identity of her secret enemy before it is too late.
And must the Christian Giovanni compromise his faith to guard the boy and save the Muslim woman he loves?
