Taking place in 1351 England, we are introduced to the brave Widow of the late Warren Hemlet, Edith, who has decided that the only way to save what is left of her village is to impersonate an exotic foreign princess.  Being from the serf class herself, Edith knows she has no choice but to go ahead with the impersonation regardless of the deadly consequences if she gets caught. She is willing to face death to save the survivors of the Black Plague in her village from starvation and is determined to go after the heartless "nobles" who don't find it in their hearts to help their serf villagers willingly.  

Knight Sir Ranulf of Frendenwyke is attending the tournament, but he is not your usual aristocrat, as he is a true idealist and does not care for the elaborate extravagances, while people in the neighboring villages are dying.   Sir Ranulf is intrigued by the beguiling mysterious princess who does not act like the other aristocratic and noble women of her time and her unusual nature has his interest from the moment they meet.

Each with their own secret to hide, the black death at their door and lives at stake; the reader will find themselves taken back to a time when clearly the nobles were anything but, and those who are willing to sacrifice everything for the poor, are few and far between.  You will fall in love with the sensuous, but sweet interactions between Sir Ranulf and the mysterious princess as their story takes us on a journey through one of the most horrific times in history.  A definite must read...
