It is 1613 and Heidelberg greets the dawn of a promising, magical age as it welcomes a beautiful princess, the daughter of England's King James. But the promise is false and soon all of central Europe writhes in rebellion and war. Wind Time, Wolf Time follows the lives of two sisters and two brothers as they struggle to survive in treacherous times.

Katerina and Anna, poor young women made bold by desperation, find work in the royal household and thus tie their destinies to those of Heidelberg's Princess Elizabeth and Prince Frederick as their fortunes soar and plummet.Meanwhile, Thomas and Josef, sons of a Munich merchant, become estranged as the maelstrom of religious war engulfs Germany. As Thomas becomes a soldier to find adventure and bury a shameful memory, Josef, an ambitious priest, intrigues to be near the ear of the Habsburg emperor.As their paths cross, the region ignites in war fed by religious passion and lust for power. Princes make and break alliances, grasp for ephemeral glory, cling to honors, fall in disgrace. Cities starve and burn. Peasants flee mobs of bedraggled soldiers sweeping across the German countryside. As Protestant and Catholic armies thrash, mauling each other, devouring everything in their paths, God forsakes all.
