"Amid the confusion that follows the battle of Sedgemoor and the rout of the Duke of Monmouth's army the rebel soldier, Randall Ainsley, [escapes and] with two companions he takes refuge for the night in a barn where a dying man gives a valuable ring into his charge. He rapidly becomes aware of the avarice of his companions and, knowing that the ring and his own life are in danger because of their greed, he decides that it would be wiser to travel alone. Pursued by the government's victorious soldiers and by his two personal enemies, Randall endeavours to make his way to the sea. His progress through the hills is delayed by a series of adventures during the course of which he rescues Laura, a mysterious maidservant, from the unwelcome attentions of a group of soldiers, and wins the friendship of a band of gipsies who help him and Laura on their journey to safety."
