This story is set during the reign of King Henry VII. Peter Brome is a poor man and without a father, and is in love with Margaret the dark-eyed daughter of John Castell, the kindly and wealthy merchant who has taken care of him and raised him. Through a series of unfortunate events Peter has just killed a soldier, through self defense it is true, however, the blood of the Spanish ambassador's men demands to be repaid. Now another man pursues fair Margaret the all powerful Marquis d'Aguilar of Spain, who is traveling in England upon a secret mission for the Inquisition. Much more than love hangs in the balance.

One of the readers was mumbling so much that a lot of the action went unheard. Male voice from New Zealand I believe. The rest of it is fine.

Excellent story by excellent writer. Some of the speech is rather faint and difficult to hear. Is there any way of ensuring everyone can be heard?

some readers are great but woman in chat er 12 13 made me stop
