"...she will be beautiful enough to make a man die of love..." Violet eyed Catherine born to the violence, terror and sensuality of the Hundred Years War, knew well the madness of the masses. She had seen them sack the Dauphin's palace, destroy her own home and kill her father, a Parisian goldsmith. By the age of 12 she was a refugee in the Beggars' Kingdom under the protective custody of a gypsy named Sara. At 21 a golden-haired woman of tantalizing and dangerous beauty, she attracts the attention of Philippe of Burgundy and finds herself in the center of royal politics and intrigue--and one step further into the destiny foreseen by the gypsy so long ago.
