As the winter of 1977 turns into spring, there is the promise of a beautiful summer on Romney Marsh in the South of England. But feisty young property lawyer, Hazel Dawkins, is unexpectedly caught in a web of frightening criminal intrigue that threatens the lives of herself and her family.
In seeking explanations, she finds herself ensnared in tragic events that occurred 1700 years earlier in a Britain ruled by the Roman Gallic Empire. There, she confronts the power of the cult of Mithras as it wars with the Old Religion.
In the midst of an earthquake that shatters the fabric of both time and place, entangling worlds separated by nearly two millennia, Hazel strives to reconcile the ancient past with the present and to discover the meaning of forces that are seemingly beyond her understanding.
