Synopsis

The only child of the most influential man outside of the King's court, Gabriel watches her father leave to answer King Henry VIII's summons shortly before a group of brigands sacks the castle and kills her mother. With only a single servant left, she sets out to catch up with her father, hoping he can make everything right once more.
Travelling through London, Southampton, and then by sea, Gabriel forges new friendships with the most unlikely of people. All along the way, she struggles with her station, and the limits of her gender.
"Gabriel pulled the hood of her cloak down, exposing her head. A single whistle from across the room drew a quick scowl from William. Apparently, his look was enough to silence any more would-be catcalls. Ignoring the men, she ran both hands through her hair to straighten it and took in a deep breath before answering. "I'm afraid it's a long story," she began."
