Plague has sweep-ed across the land, the king is dead, and many of his subjects. With no clear claimants to the throne, young Dafyd, struggling to fill his recently departed father’s Ducal title, finds himself in a tournament to decide whether he will be King. Is it God’s will? And if Dafyd has no faith? And if he has not faith in God, what if God has faith in him.
