When two ambitious families occupy the same patch of English soil, rivalry is sure to take root and flourish.

A glimmer of initiative swells into blind desire, and minor hurts, nursed with jealousy, fester into a malignant hatred. When a bitter feud is born, the price for this wild and beautiful piece of ground will take more than three generations to settle. Richard Lanyon answers to no one save the aristocratic Sweetwater family, owners of the land he farms.

His bitter resentment is legend within the bounds of their tiny Exmoor community, but as their tenant, Richard must do their bidding. Still, even noblemen don't have the power to contain ruthless ambition, and the Sweetwaters are no exception. Driven to succeed, Richard is prepared to take what is not his, and to forfeit the happiness of his family to claim the entitlements he lusts for.

In this epic story Valerie Anand creates a vivid portrait of fifteenth-century English life that resonates with the age-old themes of ambition, power, desire and greed.

Synopsis:

Exmoor, 1458 - Richard Lanyon is a free man, but resents having to answer to the aristocratic Sweetwater family. But even noblemen do not have the power to contain Richard, a man who seizes any opportunity to become a landowner in his own right - and is prepared to forfeit the happiness of his family to do so.Aiming to create a dynasty, Richard arranges his son Peter to marry a clever and hardworking woman, one he hopes will bear sons. Though Peter and his bride Lisa settle into their marriage, each harbours a broken heart, lost dreams and unspoken secrets. Richard himself has a dark secret, and if it was ever revealed, all he has worked for will be destroyed. Surviving the betrayals of the past means keeping one foot in the present, and an eye to the future...
