About a young woman named Finn Crais, she is the daughter of a poor miller living in 1291 England. When her older sister Mellana gets pregnant and has no dowry, Finn agrees to her ridiculous plan and kidnaps a rich noble man who's return from the crusades made him a very rich man. The plan is to hold him for ransom, but will she come home with less of a heart than she hoped to? And will this absurd plan work?
