(From the publisher):
It is the year 1447, and powerful men from all of England have been summoned to Parliament in the great pilgrimage town of Bury St. Edmunds. Most come to make laws and pass taxes. But a small group of nobles will use this chance to bring down their greatest rival through treachery...
From her nunnery, Dame Frevisse is brought into this swirl of politics and plotting by the ambitious Bishop of Winchester. Meant to observe and report to him what she sees, she is instead drawn into the dangerous maelstrom encircling the throne of England.
The pity is that desperate acts of loyalty and love are not always enough to save men from murder - and an innocent man from the gallows...
