The year is 1384 and Hildegard is sent on a mission to Rome to bring back the legendary Cross of Constantine but powerful enemies are determined she will not succeed and her own life is in jeopardy.

Meanwhile the plot to depose King Richard thickens…

“The rains started before Martinmas and swept throughout Europe bringing floods, murrain and the plague. They did not cease until St Lucy’s Day when a brief respite lasted until the new year. After Epiphany they returned with greater force and had not stopped since.”
