Publisher's Summary

It is 1648, and the Civil War, which an exhausted nation had believed over, has been resurrected by a king still determined to be an absolute ruler, and a parliament unable to agree how to govern without him. Blacksmith Jamie Hudson is weary and disillusioned but faces prison if he refuses to re-enlist in the army, and so he is hauled ruthlessly around England as the blood continues to flow.
Meanwhile, Jamie's wife, Lucy, is struggling to survive as a lone woman in London, while working to support the Leveller demands for democracy and freedom. As their lives carry them apart, the two hope desperately for a peace that will finally allow them to be together again.
