Born into the lesser Anglo-​Saxon nobility, Lady Eadgith lost nearly everything in the Conquest – her husband, her home, her wealth, and the protection of her lord, Sigefrith Hwala.

Beginning nearly ten years later, this is the ongoing story of how she recovered what she lost; how she gained in wisdom, grace, and dignity; and how she has rejoiced and suffered in her love for one of Lothere’s most charismatic and most despicable men.
