Chivalry, intrigue, bigamy, danger and romance are weaved seamlessly within the pages of this award-winning series as sisters Catherine and Cécile strive to carve their own destinies in a harsh and unrelenting medieval world. Separated as infants, they are raised on opposite sides of the channel during fourteenth century war-torn France and England.
Cécile d’Armagnac is the daughter of a powerful Gascon lord, destined for a royal marriage, but when her betrothal is broken, she learns of her sister, Catherine Pembroke, a pious novice at Denny Abbey, Cambridgeshire, England. The introductory letter Cécile deploys sets in motion a series of events neither of them could have imagined.
Catherine is forced to flee the convent as Cécile finds herself trapped in Paris, having unwittingly attracted the attentions of England’s heir, her father’s enemy. Both girls are torn from their familiar worlds and must rely upon the men assigned to their protection. Their separate journeys lead them on a path of discovery, not only to their true identity, but to a place in each other’s hearts.
