The daughter of the chieftain of the village in northern Scotland has been found, hiding in the dank, wet, dungeon. She fights, tooth and nail, against the invading forces, but finds the men too much for her.

Of course, her vitality and refusal to give in give Theodor the idea that she is ideal for him. He keeps her safe from his men, who seem less inclined to be lecherous, and more likely to turn away from the fighting for more riches for those who command them all. Jealousy gets in the way of any hope for a positive future for the two very different people.
