Merry Owen is desperate for her family to stay on their struggling
farm in Wales, in the shadow of the Black Castle, owned by the
de Courcys who have been enemies of Merry's family for generations.
Skilled in the family tradition of archery, Merry is happiest out
riding - but when she finds an overturned tree and a buried chest
containing an ancient Welsh text, it leads her into a past filled
with treasure, secrets and untold danger .
