Constance and her husband, Thomas Despenser, are caught up in the intrigues and political machinations. Constance's much-loved elder brother, high in Richard's favour and at the same time looking to his own advancement, is often on the opposite side of the political fence to Despenser, leaving her loyalties torn between them.

When the banished Harry Bolingbroke returns from exile to lead an armed revolt against Richard, the world Constance has known is torn apart. After Bolingbroke becomes King, she is left alone and at the mercy of her enemies. Constance turns from loyal subject to implacable rebel, determined to get her revenge.
