This is the first book in the Knights Are Forever series and takes place in 1066, when the Normans brutally defeat the Saxons and William the Conqueror is crowned the King of England.

Even though their country now belongs to William, the Saxons continue to rebel against his rule. But they are no match for the seasoned Norman knights who ruthlessly put down the rebellions.

Against his wishes, Calder Wyndym, one of the king's most valued knights, becomes Overlord of a small village in the North. He is tasked to build a castle to protect the King's lands and to find a way for everyone under his protection to learn to live together peacefully.

Calder endeavors to follow his King's decree but, in the process of doing so, he gives his heart to a lovely, young Saxon woman. Their relationship causes an even deeper rift between the Normans and Saxons.

Will the strength of their love be able to overcome the hatred and prejudice? Or will the deceit, disrespect and betrayals from both sides tear the lovers apart?
