Within this era of danger and romance, John of Gaunt, the king s son, falls passionately in love with the already married Katherine.

From the Back Cover:

A glorious example of romance in its most classic literary sense: exhilarating, exuberant, and rich with the jeweled tones of England in the 1300s. Austin Chronicle
