Description

Fifteen-year-old Belle is a dreamer with a sharp tongue and an aching burden: her carelessness has crippled her father. A chance meeting with bespectacled Luke has her decide to join the pilgrimage to Canterbury made famous by Geoffrey Chaucer's beloved tales. There she befriends the famous writer and Walter, a handsome squire with a secret of his own. Growing to love her fellow travelers dearly, Belle is thrilled by the attention from both Luke and Walter. But casting its shadow over the pilgrims is the threat to England posed by an unreliable king anxious to keep his throne at any cost. When Belle discovers that Master Chaucer is embroiled in dangerous politics, she is forced to make a choice that will turn her pilgrimage into a gamble with a deadly price.

K. M. Grant's epic story will introduce the world of Chaucer to a whole new group of readers.




About the Author
K. M. Grant grew up in Lancashire, England, where she adopted a horse named Miss Muffet when she was 14 years old, a horse who later inspired the character of Hosanna. She and her older sisters used to stay up late devising stories to entertain each other. That, and K. M.'s extraordinary family history (one of her ancestors was the last in England to be drawn and quartered!), fueled her storytelling. She lives in Glascow, Scotland, with her husband and children where she works as a journalist and a broadcaster.
