Because Bishop Thomas has her father imprisoned and threatens his life, Joanna must find the secret that alchemists have searched for throughout the ages, but she must do it in a few weeks. When the landless knight comes blundering into her life and kidnaps her in an effort to free his brother from the crafty bishop, Joanna is desperate to escape him and return to the bishop’s palace.

Hugh Manhill is fascinated by his lovely captive and wishes it were possible to free his brother and keep her. Drawn by a strong passion that neither can deny they hatch a plot to free both Joanna’s father and Hugh’s brother, but it involves risk to them both and there is no help from Hugh’s father. Can they achieve all they want and still find happiness?

This is an earthy, passionate romp through medieval England and keeps the reader on the edge right to the last. Townsend has warmth and a way of brining a scene to vivid life so that in turning the pages the reader is transported to another place and time.

Anyone who enjoys a good story that is well written will want to read this book. It is well worth five red roses. Linda Sole
