During the dangerous time of the crusade, noble Roger Fitzhugh travels through England collecting the taxes for the king. When a debtor threatens to sell a young noblewoman living in his household as a slave to pay his taxes, Roger decides on an unusual course. He buys the beautiful young Rohese himself and offers to marry her, so that she does not end up in a whorehouse. Roger has no idea that there is a dark secret surrounding his young, quiet wife. An intrigue that leads him all the way to the highest court circles, since Rohese is the granddaughter of one the richest and most powerful men in England - if she could only prove who she really is.
