This is a historical thriller of layered secrets, fickle love, and tests of mettle. The story follows Edith, an ostracized noblewoman, and Aidan, a timid monastic novice, as they strive to protect a mysterious book with a golden falcon on the cover from the conquering Normans.
Chasing them is the rapacious Bishop Odo. He knows the book would ruin him if it ever came to light and will stop at nothing to destroy it.
As their world crumbles and as Odo’s grip tightens, Edith and Aidan must face their worst fears and do the unthinkable to survive and protect all they hold dear.
