In 1152 England, Lady Bronwen is the inheritor of the ancient way of the Britons. She's lost everything that was dear to her -- her husband and the home that was her birthright. Her last hope is knight Jacques le Brun. He begs Bronwen to let him defend her life and to go with him to a brave, different world. Can they find happiness in a world they do not call their own? The Briton (3) is rich in historical details only Catherine Palmer can convey, but many may find the story confusing.
