Summary

Robin has made a powerful ally in the Duke of Lancaster. But he has made powerful enemies too: not only his childhood adversary Mortimer, but the sadistic knight Peter de Gray. Returning to England, he is awarded the fiefdom of Fernbrook in Lancashire, where he makes a great success of breeding horses, and meets and marries the beautiful noblewoman Joanna. 

But the wheel of fortune keeps turning, and as the years pass Robin and his friends must face trials and tragedies: plague, war, and political intrigue are never far away. And when Fernbrook falls into the covetous hands of the irredeemably wicked young Earl of Burton, Robin must confront horrors at home which rival even the bloodshed he has experienced in the ongoing wars against France....
