Mathilda has grown up safe in the love of her powerful parents, her rough and tumble brothers and, above all, her younger sister and closest confidante, Judith. Now, though, they must separate. Judith marries the glamorous Earl Torr and departs for life in England and Mathilda heads to Normandy with William.When William's cousin King Edward of England weakens, his eyes turn across the narrow sea to the glittering throne he promised Mathilda as a young bride.
