From the grandfather of Christian fiction—the third novel in the Winslow Breed series finds shy Colin Winslow caught up in the intrigue of Queen Elizabeth’s court.

Young Colin Winslow grows up feeling altogether different from the rest of his family. Not bold and rough like his charismatic brother, Adam, or headstrong and spoiled like his sister, Adara, he is a gentle soul with a special love for natural things. His interest in animals, medicine, and healing brings him in contact with a strange woman who lives in the woods, Meg Caradoc. She teaches him the fine art of using a variety of herbs to control sickness and pain.

When Colin studies at Oxford, an eccentric but brilliant professor guides the young man to a career in medicine. This formal knowledge, combined with knowledge of Meg’s herbal remedies, makes Colin an insightful and successful doctor—one who catches the eye of Queen Elizabeth herself.

Colin’s skill quickly earns him many patients, some highly placed in the courts of both his queen and her cousin Mary Queen of Scots. This once shy and uncertain young man finds himself in the midst of court intrigue and a key player in quelling assassination plots and passing vital information. When Colin faces his most difficult case—curing the wounds his brave brother suffered in battle—he must confront his attraction to Adam’s wife, his unsteady faith in God, and his command of medicine: will he abandon his noble role and succumb to temptation, or will he take his place as the new hero of the Breed of Winslow?
