16C Europe was a time of constant religious wars; the North embroiled in bitter conflict between Protestant and Catholic and the South threatened with the growing Ottoman power and the spread of Islam. England was Protestant and Queen Elizabeth is determined to keep Catholic influence from her shores. France struggles with her own religious war and the Spanish-owned Netherlands suffer under the hand of their overlords. Trade, the wealth of all nations, has been disrupted. Sea ports are closed while pirates haunt the seas and overland routes are plagued by outlaws. New ways must be found for English wool to reach the markets of the Mediterranean and beyond. Two characters enter this scene of turmoil: Emlyn Tomas, a young, Catholic student who is returning to Wales to decide on his future, and Tomasso Vincentini, a wealthy merchant travelling to Venice for the sole purpose of revenge. Emlyn becomes entangled in plots for Catholic rebellion and schemes of the English court. Tomasso begins to systematically break down the wealth and reputation of his old enemy Carlos Grimani. The future of Carmelia, an innocent convent girl will eventually bring these two extraordinary characters together.
