A STORY OF LOVE, TRUTH AND POWER

Piercing Time is a 10-part historical drama based on the story of the Bassett family in England almost 1,000 years ago.  A political thriller and love story, Piercing Time follows the life of Cynewyn of Drayton, a Saxon/Mercian heiress from a long line of powerful landowners who falls on hard times after the Normans take away her land and very nearly, her life.  Winding through the story are falconers, priests, jongleurs, seamstresses, kings, queens and exotic Turkish guardsmen. Cynewyn’s fate is intimately tied to the creation of the Bayeux Tapestry, an artifact of crowning genius that may or may not have been a tool of propaganda for the Saxon cause. While Cynewyn of Drayton is fictional, the events in the story are real.  

Enjoy the journey to 11th century England in PIERCING TIME.
