Set in the early 1300s, a retelling of one of the most sensational episodes in English history - the relationship of Edward II, then Prince of Wales, with his lover Piers Gaveston. The underlying theme is that of the troubled relationship between sexuality and duty in the royal family and the conflict between the disposition of the young heir and the expectations of his domineering father. Poignant and compassionately narrated, this is a story of infatuation and a relationship pursued to destruction.
