In Tudor England, Tamsin leaves her home in Cornwall for London, where her mother hopes she will find a good husband. Though Tamsin does not have high hopes for her prospects, a certain earl from Yorkshire proves to have his eye on her.
Meanwhile, King Henry is wreaking havoc on the Church. His reforms and dissolutions, organised by the ruthless Lord Cromwell, threaten to change the religious landscape of England forever. In the north, the people are beginning to revolt, creating the Pilgrimage of Grace, which seeks to stand up to the King and halt these reforms.
Alongside her loyal maid, Tamsin will find herself caught up in treachery, embarking on long travels, and slipping further and further from her humble Cornish roots.
