Gladly would she give her heart to young Joscelin, a noble squire who would adore her were she wealthy or not. But before Joscelin can save his beloved from this odious marriage, Huon de Domville is found murdered. And Joscelin is forced to hide in a leper sanctuary, so certain are his foes that he is the guilty one.
