Reina of Kenwick knows a lot about adversity. Deaf from a childhood illness, she is about to be banished to a convent by her cold and distant father. Baron Fulke of Erlegh has a tragic past. Throwing himself into a life of battle and debauchery, he gains the notice of King Henry I. King Henry is a changed man since losing his only legitimate son and heir in the White Ship sinking. Determined to crown his daughter the first queen of England, he seeks advantage over his opposition by using Reina's unique ability to lip-read. In a battle between love and loyalty, Fulke and his courageous band of knights enact a plan that will either free Reina from the king's grip or see all of them executed for treason.
