Synopsis

The book is set in 15th Century Yorkshire, while the Wars of the Roses are still being waged. Alice, in her early twenties, lives alone in a small, remote valley in a shepherd’s shelter and small cave. Her life changes completely when she finds a young child alone, beside the body of a woman, and takes the child home with her. The story follows the simple life of Alice, Cissy and their friends. There are further upheavals when, after three years, Alice learns through a local priest, that an important man, who may be Cissy’s father, is searching for his child. Deep religious faith, love, treachery, good and evil all combine to reveal not only Cissy’s background but also Alice’s own history and future.
