England still in tumult at the start of the fifteenth
century, as Kate Clifford finds herself working to prove the
innocence of her longtime confidante.
It is deep winter in York, 1400, the ground frozen, the
short days dimmed with the smoke from countless fires, the
sun, when it shines, low in the sky. It is rumored that the
Epiphany Uprising, meant to relieve the realm of the Henry

ringleaders have been caught, some slaughtered as they fled
west by folk loyal to Henry, and the kingís men now search
the towns for survivors.
A perilous time, made worse for Kate Clifford by the
disappearance of Berend, her cook and confidante, shortly

She is hardly consoled when Berend reappears, wounded,

When he is accused of brutally murdering a spice seller in
the city, Kate discovers a chest of jewels in his

Margery, wanted by the king for her husbandís part in the
uprising. For the sake of their long friendship, and the

his innocence. So, too, does Sir Elric. And he has the
powerful backing of the Earl of Westmoreland.
All she need do is confide in him. If only she trusted her
