A STORY OF FRIENDSHIP, LOYALTY, AND REDEMPTION SET AGAINST
THE BRUTAL BACKDROP OF THE HUNDRED YEARS WAR
The year is 1346. The tiny English village of Woodbridge, Kent has been rocked by the discovery of a brutal murder. The brewer’s daughter has been found strangled and mutilated beneath the floor of the local tithe barn. The lord of the manor, Sir William Morston, fearing that suspicion may fall upon his wayward son, Nicholas, decides to send him off to Portsmouth where Edward III is assembling a vast army for an invasion of France. Accompanied by his childhood companion, Thomas Kempe, Nicholas sets off on an adventure that is destined to change their lives irrevocably. Eager to prove himself, Nicholas’ towering ambition and flexible morality will test the bonds of friendship, loyalty, and honor as the two are thrust into the midst of one of the most improbable military exploits in history – the stunning campaign which will culminate in the decisive battle of Crecy.
