Merry Owen is desperate for her family to stay on their struggling farm in Wales, in the shadow of the Black Castle owned by the de Courcys, who have been enemies of Merry's family for generations. Skilled in the family tradition of archery, Merry is happiest out riding - but when she finds an overturned tree and a buried chest containing an ancient Welsh text, it leads her into a past filled with treasure, secrets, and untold danger.
In the wilds of the Welsh mountains, the brave and beautiful longbow girl, Merry Owen, discovers a river that takes her back in time to the autocratic kingdom of King Henry VIII. While there she finds she must compete in an archery tournament to save her ancestors' land from being seized by their aristocratic neighbors, the de Courcys. Merry's best friend (and heir to the de Courcy wealth), James de Courcy , follows her back in time, and the two get tangled up in their families' ancient histories. There are forces working against them in both the past and the present. Will they be able to survive their pasts to save their futures?
