Sir Godfrey Tallboys had come home from the Crusades. Home to Knight’s Acre. But the years had brought many changes – and not only to his estate. His wife Sybilla, exhausted with struggling to keep poverty at bay, had grown old before her time. And with Sir Godfrey’s return, there was further change. With him was the Moorish slave girl who had saved his life in Spain…Tana, beautiful and beguiling, his mistress – and now she was expecting his child. Aflame with all the jealous passions of the East, Tana saw Sybilla as the obstacle to her desire. Her arrival was to alter the fortunes of the quiet Suffolk house. And in a way none of them could have possibly foreseen.

"Sequel to Knight's Acre"
Brilliantly read by Patience Tomlinson. A gripping and very vivid if somewhat depressing tale .
