'A masterpiece. It was as if I could hear the musket shots in my ears.'

Samantha J. Morris, 'Lady Hertford.'

1685. King Charles II dies unexpectedly, and his illegitimate son, the handsome young duke of Monmouth, rises against his uncle in armed rebellion. And the penalty for treason is death.

The rebellion turns young Ann Carter’s world upside down. Who should she pray for, when musket balls start to fly? Her father and her family – or the handsome young officer in King James’s army, who offers to take her to London as his mistress?

Which matters most – love or loyalty?
