When Belle meets Luke, son of an alchemist and scribe to the famous poet Chaucer, she is determined to travel with him to Canterbury on a pilgrimage. She hopes for a miracle: that her father will walk again. She also hopes to atone for her own part in his accident. But it is a time of unrest, and the young King Richard II is only just hanging onto his throne. As the pilgrims draw closer to Canterbury, a malign character suspects Chaucer of treason. Meanwhile, Belle is falling in love twice over – drawn both towards Luke and to Walter, the wealthy son of a knight. And when a rebellion against the King starts to gather pace, and a web of intrigue tightens around Chaucer, Belle and her friends must risk everything to save their king, their country and themselves… A heady tale of intrigue, treason and forbidden love, set in the time of one of England’s greatest poets.
