In the bloody struggle for the crown, Henry of Blois, Bishop of Winchester and papal legate, is drawn into a contretemps that will result in a town laid waste, a nunnery burned to the ground, churches razed, and the priory of Hyde Mead engulfed in flames.

Humilis, the elder of the pair, has entered the cloister because of the profound injuries he suffered during the Crusades.
