Set adrift as a fugitive, Theresa relies on her uncommon education and the sympathy of strangers to survive. When she encounters Alcuin of York, a shrewd and influential monk with close ties to King Charlemagne, she hopes her luck might have finally changed. Yet all is not what it seems.
As the mystery builds, Theresa discovers that the ultimate secret may reside in a parchment Charlemagne himself commissioned Theresa's father to write. Thrust into a political web of deception and danger, the daring young woman must outmaneuver a monarch and risk the fate of an empire to save her family.

Couldn't stop listening.
Any additional comments?
The story keeps you in suspense always wanting to know what happens next. This was the first time I have listened to Tanya Eby and I thoroughly enjoyed her characterizations.

Is a well narrated story that will transport you to the 700s. It inspire me to do more research about the towns that are mentioned.
