Son of Dust by H. F. M. Prescott

“You need not be a habitual reader of romances to get caught up in this powerful love story. You need only be human.”
—Mike Aquilina, from the introduction

Fulcun Geroy, a brooding young lord in eleventh-century Normandy, is torn between his love for God and his obsession with the wife of a rival at the court of William the Conqueror. He becomes entangled in an adulterous liaison that triggers a frightful storm of warfare and revenge. 
H. F. M. Prescott’s riveting historical novel explores the stark choices that arise when religious passion clashes with erotic desire. It is an artful and morally serious tale of wounded lovers climbing a difficult path of renunciation, purification, and healing.
