A darkly twisted psychological thriller exploring the legend of Lady Godiva’s naked ride.
Having survived a grave illness to become one of 11th-century England’s wealthiest land-owners, Godgyfu of Coventry (Lady Godiva) remains forever grateful to the town whose pa-tron saint worked such miracles. She vows to rebuild Coventry’s abbey and better the lives of its townsfolk. But the wider kingdom is descending into political turmoil, and her husband, Earl Leofric, starts to break under the strain. Godgyfu finds her own plans unravelling the moment she meets Thomas, a Benedictine novice with perverse secret desires. Three lives be-come dangerously entangled in a shocking web of ambition, voyeuristic lust, and horrid ob-session. Can Godgyfu escape the monk’s menacing wiles and Leofric’s betrayals to secure her future in a changing kingdom? Perhaps, but first she faces a dark test of wills leading her perilously closer to a legendary ride…
