Autumn, 1066: The Battle of Hastings is done. The struggle for England begins.
Matilda, Lady of Flanders, Duchess of Normandy, rules as Regent of Normandy for her husband, Duke William.

As William sets England to flame, Matilda waits in Normandy for the time to come when she can claim her crown.

Matilda comes to understand that God is watching, and is not pleased with what He sees. As Matilda battles to save her children, she finds she must stand against her own husband, in order to protect the lives, and immortal souls, of her sons and daughters.
Through heartache, discord, battle, rebellion, and slaughter, the fate of England, and the future of the house of Normandy, will be decided.
