1370: Owen Archer, ex-soldier and spy, is preparing to leave Wales, his work for John of Gaunt completed. Angered by Owen's prolonged absence, John Thoresby, Archbishop of York, orders his return.

Meanwhile in York, Lucie Wilton is disheartened by her husband's long absence and concerned by allegations against her apothecary. Then Brother Michaelo brings upsetting news, forcing her to journey to her father's manor outside the city. Increasingly desperate, she accepts the company of a stranger...
But Owen's stay in the land of his birth has created divided loyalties in him. And those who serve the Welsh rebel leader would have Owen sign up to fight and never go home...
Where will his loyalties lie?
