SYNOPSIS
In 1141 England is still torn by the civil strife caused by the struggle for the throne between King Stephen and the Empress Maud. Attack and counter-attack have left much of the city of Winchester in ashes, and the total destruction of the Abbey of Hyde Mead has caused the dispersion of the brothers among other Benedictine houses, wherever they can find shelter. Two of them seek refuge in Shrewsbury.
