'When Kate Ashley finds herself the unwilling inheritor of the Thornton family estate of Seven Ways in Worcestershire, she could not have foreseen that along with the impoverished estate she, the respectable widow of a parliamentary officer, would find herself drawn into the last conflict of the English Civil War by her love for the royalist, Jonathan Thornton. Jonathan has returned from exile, carrying with him the vain hopes of the young King Charles II and the demons of his own dark past. In the aftermath of the battle of Worcester, Kate is caught between Jonathan and the man who has hunted him down over the years, the dour parliamentarian, Stephen Prescott. Jonathan comes face to face with his nemesis and learns the price he has paid for his long dead love; a secret that will change his life, and Kate's, forever.'
