SYNOPSIS
The year is 1142 and all England is in the iron grip of bitter civil war. The Empress Maud is besieged in Oxford while King Stephen waits impatiently for her to surrender her claim to his throne. Within the sheltered cloisters of the Benedictine Abbey of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, begins a chain of events that prove no less momentous than the political upheavals of the outside world. First there is the sad demise of Richard Ludel, whose ten-year-old son and heir, also Richard, is a pupil at the Abbey.
