Series: Owen Archer
Late spring, 1370. Owen Archer,ex-soldier and spy, prepares to depart Wales after completing political duties for John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster. But his attempts to arrange safe passage are thwarted when his stonemason is hanged. Meanwhile, in York, Owen's wife, Lucie Wilton, is disheartened by her husband's long absence and the rumors that he has abandoned his family. Equally angered is John Thoresby, Archbishop of York, who orders Owen's immediate return. But Owen is caught up in a country at war, and his return has engendered divided loyalties. Now he feels a powerful pull toward the rebel cause. And rebel leader Owain Lawgoch would rather have Owen fight the good fight with him-and never return home.
