The nation is still recovering from the Norman invasion three years earlier – and adjusting to life under its sometimes brutal new rulers.
A young girl trembles in the shadows of what was once her home.
Avis is homeless and penniless, and with no family left alive she is forced to become a ward of Richard, the Norman lord who has taken her home.
But when King William decrees that Norman lords must marry Anglo-Saxon women Avis must make a terrible choice.
Either marry the repulsive Richard or else take a chance on another Norman, Melville, a man she has never met.
Soon she realises that survival in a time of turmoil and war depends of putting aside the prejudices of the past.
And if she can do so, kingdoms and hearts can still be among her Conquests.
