Miriel Weaver's stepfather has sent his independent-minded and high-spirited daughter to a nunnery to "curb her spirit." There she rescues half-drowned, exhausted Nicholas de Caen, the only survivor of King John's supply train, which vanished in quicksand in 1216. Both escape the nunnery but then part unpleasantly. Gerri Halligan imbues Miriel and Nicholas with steadfast and determined spirits that carry the story from adventure to adventure. As the characters mature, they meet again, Nicholas an established trader and Miriel an accomplished wool merchant. When sparks fly between them, Halligan's enthusiastic narration keeps the historical and love themes humming. M.B.K. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB / MAR 03]
