The year is 1651 and England's only hope for the future lies in Charles Stuart's escape to France from Cromwell's rule. To Verity Ashbourne, a secret follower of the King, the advent of Richard Kingston, the commander of a troop of Roundheads billeted at her home, is a continuing threat to that hope and to those of all royalists. How can she remain silent when she suspects him of being a spy? Yet at any other time but this she might have loved such a man...She despise all he stands for, so why does her heart play the traitor?
