'Not to every young girl is it given to enter the harem of the Sultan of Turkey and return to her homeland a virgin . . .'
Sixteen-year-old Philippa Somerville has left Constantinople intact. Returning to England as wife in name only to Francis Crawford of Lymond, she wastes no time in seeking the truth about her new spouse, even as she finds herself navigating the paranoid court of Queen Mary.
