1314, the Border Wars of Robert the Bruce and King Edward drag into their net the powerful warlords, the common peasant and the holy monk alike. Men change allegiance according to their sense of who currently rides high on the wheel of fortune; only very tattered vestiges of the true chivalric tradition linger, borne by such a one as Robert de Falaise, novice monk, bound by oath to stay within the cloister, yet soon to be snatched into the temporal world, where men are motivated by duplicity and spite. His own destiny slowly unravels as this well-told, enthralling story unfolds. Recommended for experienced lower/mid secondary readers.
