273 pages. November, in the year of our Lord 1145, and the bitter rift between King Stephen and Empress Maud at last has a chance for reconciliation. With both sides pondering the wisdom of further conflict, they agree that a council should take place. It is hoped that the meeting will at least resolve the question of prisoners of war, a number of whom were taken following the shocking defection to the King's cause of Philip, younger son of the Earl of Gloucester.
