Overview

Sometimes the most dangerous enemy comes from within your own family. In medieval England daughters meant dowries - land and money leaving the family. Richard is determined to have a male heir to keep the castle Havenhoerte in their possession and forces his daughter, Emma, to marry at the age of consent, just twelve years old. This is only the beginning of the two families' entanglement. Kidnapping, knights, battles, weddings and witchcraft spanning three generations follow. When her niece, Sarah, comes to visit, Emma is reminded of herself as the two get to know each other while working in the gardens. Emma tries to help Sarah avoid the same kind of loveless arranged marriage she endured. With nowhere else to turn, the two women look to the dangerous path of witchcraft at a time when witches were hung. Emma finally confronts her own past and learns that it is possible for her to love and be happy. This new happiness is threatened, however, when her father once again asserts control over his daughter and is determined to regain his land and destroy Emma. Can love and chivalry overcome evil? This question is put to the test time after time in this gripping tale of political alliances created and lost through marriage.
