    Summary

    Gerard Eliassoen seems destined for greatness. As good and kind as he is talented, Gerard aspires to study art and calligraphy in Italy and then become a priest. But when Margaret Brandt's auburn hair and violet eyes capture his attention, he finds himself falling in love with the most charming and virtuous girl in Holland. Because marriage would ruin Gerard's chances at becoming a priest, his father and self-seeking brothers oppose the couple's plans. But Gerard and Margaret soon discover an even greater foe-the village Burgomaster (mayor). Will courage and love carry them through the trails ahead? Or will their enemies succeed at creating an insurmoutable gulf between them?

    An excellent book about love and the strong greed for money.
    Set in the 1500's it has an almost Romeo and Juliet feel to it. But I've never been a fan of Romeo and Juliet. So when I had to do a book report at school I chose this book over one of Shakespear's most famous works.
