What starts as piece on cocktails and couture becomes more dangerous when she meets Charlie, an MI5 agent monitoring the relationships between Simpson, the Prince of Wales and German Chancellor Adolf Hitler…

1647. With the men of the village away fighting, Lady Anne’s Royalist household is struggling to survive the winter with Cromwell’s Army bearing down on them. When Joan, Anne’s illegitimate half-sister and suspected witch, shows up on her doorstep looking for protection, Anne is faced with a terrible choice…
