At the dawn of the twelfth century a lad on the verge of manhood, fell in love for the first time and it nearly got him killed. Thirty years later, can he find the courage to risk love a second time — with the same man?
Left for dead by a stream and found by a kindly monk, Rhonwellt ap Mwrheth has spent the intervening years as a brother at a small Benedictine priory in southern Wales. His days there are simple and predictable, ora et labora—prayer and work. His life takes a turn when Sir Tristan Cunniff, an embittered, war-weary knight rides back into his life. For the last thirty years, each thought the other dead, with only fading memories of the forbidden love they once shared and its tragic consequences. Reunited and faced with possibilities neither could have imagined, they must decide where to go from here.
