Keep your friends close, your enemies closer, and your family closest of all...

Orphaned at the age of eight, Lady Cecily Burkhart becomes the ward of a rich and prestigious family. Welcomed as one of their own, Cecily is nurtured and loved by Lord Hal and his wife Lady Grace.

As the years pass the family's devout daughter, Mirabella, becomes increasingly consumed by her religious vocation. But when Henry VIII's reign of terror begins to spread throughout England, Mirabella's monastic life is ripped from her. As her life is torn apart, the true reason for her religious fervour becomes clear - her forbidden love for the family's priest and tutor, Father Alec.

As the family falls apart, Cecily must hold them together. But a dangerous mutual attraction between her and Father Alec begins to grow. Plagued with jealousy, Mirabella unleashes a tumultuous chain of events that threatens to destroy everyone around her, especially Cecily...
