Arabella has resigned herself to the position of mother and wife, considering herself lucky to be in a much easier life than she had previously known.
But there are clouds of war gathering from the North-West as King Ernulf, Prince Louis's half brother, begins to suspect him of eying the crown.
Now, Arabella must rise to the occasion to protect her children and perhaps her own life.
