The powerful story of the troubled times when the Tudor succession was in dispute.
These are dark days for England; the Tudor succession hangs precariously in the balance, along with the lives of its people. The wrong religion can all too easily mean a brutal death in a time when the difference between 'faithful' and 'heretic' rests on the monarch alone. With the shadow of the dreaded Inquisition looming across the continent from Spain, one family, lead by two brave men - daring and adventurous Felipe and his cousin, reserved and thoughtful Richard - struggles to survive against the overwhelming odds.
This is an epic, unforgettable historical novel, set during some of England's most tumultuous years.
