1454. Tensions are rising between the Houses of York and Lancaster. On the brink of civil war, unease and distrust fill the air, and nobody can be trusted.
Bethany Mortimer, in search of a miracle cure for her impending blindness, leaves her manor and her bereaved father to visit the Holy Shrine at Walsingham. Feeling that she has little to lose, she breaks the bonds of familiarity and sets out on an adventure. Along the way her life is changed forever when her path crosses that of Sir William Oldhall, Richard Duke of York and their kinsman Pip Harsyck.
Surprised at a request to deliver a sealed letter to the House of the Friars Minor at Little Walsingham, Bethany believes that she is carrying news of great political importance, little does she know that what she is carrying is something of far greater significance. Something that can unravel the mysteries of her lineage and something that Queen Margaret of Anjou will stop at nothing to get.
