From the cover: “Jess, a teacher in London, is attacked by someone she fears knows her well. Fleeing to her sister’s house in the Welsh borders to recuperate, she is disturbed by the cries of a mysterious child. Two thousand years before, the valley below the house is the scene of a great battle between Caratacus, king of the British tribes, and the invading Romans. The proud warrior is captured and taken as a prisoner to Rome with his wife and daughter, the princess Eigon. Jess is inexorably drawn to investigate Eigon’s story, and as the Welsh house ceases to be a peaceful sanctuary she decides to visit Rome herself. There lie the clues that will unravel the mystery of Eigon’s astonishing life — but which threaten to draw in ever more closely Jess's own tormentor. Compelled to follow Eigon’s journey as she grows from disoriented girl into a striking woman with the powerful gift of healing, Jess, like her heroine and nemesis, takes risks which put her and all who love her in terrible danger.”
