Venice, Ypres, Wales – an incredible adventure across 14th century Europe

Leaving? What is that? It means nothing. While the heart remembers there is no leaving.

Welshman, Dai, a trader, and his motley band of fellow-travellers have landed in Venice, their welcome marred by a vicious quarrel on the quayside. It is an omen of troubles to come. Here, men are tortured to death at the pointing of a suspicious finger. In the English Fens, Edgar and Agathi face an incomer intent on stealing their inheritance.

In Wales, Edward the English king is stamping hard on a proud people dangerously outnumbered. Intent on finding her English grandfather – Will the Wordmaker – Kazan, as her companions know her, will need all her talents and wiles simply to stay alive.

Half a year later, where the River Mawddach reaches the Irish Sea, where Will began his journey, an ending is reached... and for Sophia, the storyteller's granddaughter, a new beginning.
