AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'It is the time of Richard the Lion Heart, the time of the Crusades and the mysterious Knights Templar. Donal, an Irish chieftain, and Robert, his Norman lord, travel to the Holy Land as their fathers did before them. But before Donal leaves, he gives his wife Eilish a token—half a penny broken by the tilecutter. Should she receive the other half, she will know he is dead. From the lush beauty of twelfth-century Ireland to the dangerous secrets of a desert fortress, The Tilecutter's Penny is a rich and gripping story of action, adventure, love and betrayal'.
