As he did so often, H. Rider Haggard brings together an ancient supernatural power and Europeans of a later time. In Red Eve, English knights and ladies of the 14th century find the undying spirit of destruction and its reborn priestly love within their own struggles. Alchemy, plague, and clerical reform all complicate the course of true love in this very unusual romance.
When Eve Clattering-known as Red Eve because she always dresses in red--is betrothed to Sir Edmund Acour, Count of Noyon, it goes against her will and her every instinct. Rumors of Sir Edmund's treachery have reached her ears, and she suspects he may be planning to seize the throne of England. Hugh de Cressi, Eve's true love, must rise above his station, help save the king . . . and win Red Eve for his own!
