When Gavin of Ashgrove and his closest friend are captured in a fierce battle during the Hundred Years' War, their captors demand a hefty ransom from their fathers for their return. Robert is quickly set free, but Gavin's father refuses to pay for his son's release, leaving him to rot in a squalid French prison. Aided by a sympathetic priest, he escapes and returns home to England, only to find he has been proclaimed a bastard and disinherited. With nowhere to turn Gavin journeys to Kentwood, where he fostered as a boy, hoping Lord Aldred will take him on as a knight in his guard. The old warrior is close to death, but he soon realizes Gavin is his son. Aldred plots to have Gavin inherit Kentwood and marry his much younger wife, Elizabeth, a famed and opinionated beauty who remains a virgin after a decade of marriage. Will the king recognize Lord Aldred's first request of a marriage between Elizabeth and Robert, uniting Robert's estate with Kentwood-or will the temperamental Edward reward Aldred's years of service and honor a dying man's final request?
