Publisher's Summary

Newly returned from an eventful mission to Scotland - and eager to be reunited with his family - Roger the Chapman is far from pleased when Timothy Plummer, Spymaster General to the King, commands him to undertake another mission. He is to accompany the beautiful but manipulative Eloise Gray on a special journey to Paris, pretending to be her husband.

Though Plummer is reluctant to reveal the motive behind this appointment, Roger understands that the French king is making overtures to the Duke of Burgundy on behalf of the Dauphin - a move which could wreck the relationship with England's staunch ally and most important customer for her wool exports.

Another Good Book

All in all, another good book. An enjoyable and satisfying story. The attention to detail of the lives, the languages, the food, the cities and the countries fascinate me. However, the ending was a little abrupt for me. I would like to know more of the finer details to wrap up the story. But then again, most books leave out the details I would like to know at the ending. Nevertheless I expect another book to follow to tidy up a few items I am still curious about.
