In the long awaited follow up to Sarah Pernell's first book 'The Gift and the Promise' we follow the fortunes not only of the peasant boy Walter, but also of William, a direct descendant of Ceolwynn and Renaud.
When Walter, a young peasant boy, attacks his abusive stepfather in order to protect his sister, Elisabeth, the consequences leave him no choice but to flee, alone and penniless, into a perilous world. In his struggle to survive Walter weaves a powerful thread through the lives of strangers, linking them all in a cruel tapestry of love, sorrow and murder.
For the next 10 years Walter's travels take him throughout England and eventually to the Holy Land. Kind and courageous Walter makes friends easily, but fate is cruel and his life seems to be beset by sorrow and misfortune.
