The widow of the fierce Mercian king, who once brought death and destruction to the coastal community, is an uneasy sight for many. Although everyone is thankful for Northumbria's fragile peace, painful memories are still fresh and some can think of nothing but revenge.

While the Abbess is busy trying to secure an on-going peace for the kingdom, Fridgyth starts her own investigation, though she has no idea what she is dealing with or the danger she is in . . .

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Narrator Danielle Cohen reunites audiobook listeners with Fridgyth, an herb-wife who lives at a monastery…Unfamiliar medieval names could make these characters difficult to keep straight. However, Cohen solves the problem with her use of distinct voices. She gives a gentle but wizened voice to Fridgyth that will endear her to listeners.” AudioFile
