Galeran of Heywood has come back from war, leaner, tougher, callused in body and soul. Although he longs for his wife and the child he has never seen, he finds he has a rival. Ambitious Raymond of Lowick want Galeran's lands, castle, and wife, and he will use any means and decit to gain control over Jehanne. But Galeran is not a man to give up, and as the glittering court assembles, two men will vie for the same woman

Summary
Returning from Jerusalem and the Crusade he embarked upon in the hopes his beloved wife Jehanne might become pregnant with the child they both desired, Galeran finds his castle besieged by his father; the son born 9 months after he left, dead; and his wife living with a former rival, having just borne his daughter. Both proud, yet still loving one another, they must come to terms with these circumstances and their questions. In the background, his cousin Aline, destined to become a nun, plays dangerous games of the heart with Galeran's friend and fellow-crusader Raoul. Characters in this novel also appear in Beverley's Dark Champion. Readers may also appreciate the racy historical novels of Elizabeth Lowell and Suzanne Robinson. (Description by: Joyce Saricks) --
