By Elizabeth Chadwick


When a comet appears in the sky over England in 1066, Ailith feels sure that it can only bode well. Yet, within a year, Ailith's joy turns to heartache as her husband and her child are taken from her and the conquering Normans advance. Ailith's grief turns to love for a brief period with Rolf de Brize, a handsome and womanising Norman invader but in the aftermath of the Battle of Hastings she discovers a betrayal she cannot forgive. Years later, the spirited and strong-willed Julitta is determined to find happiness and her quest takes her on a Pilgrimage to Compostella to a colourful horse fair in Bordeaux, to the terrors of piracy on the open sea
