When Rebekah was 14 she fell in love with 16-year-old Pierre d'Anton and they were betrothed. But Rebekah's father died and she went to live with her grandfather, Dr. Hasdi, and embraced her Jewish heritage. Pierre vowed that he would convert to Judaism so he could still marry Rebekah, but her grandfather did not believe that Pierre would be prepared to give up his title and property which would happen if he became a Jew. He feared that Pierre would revert to being Christian and Rebekah with him once they were married. Rebekah and Pierre made plans for Rebekah to be abducted by Pierre on the journey to Paris and she is taken back to Pierre's home.

Jamie and Ian are ushered in at knife-point and Ian sees that the rug which was stolen from their wagon is on the floor. Pierre explains to them that Rebekah is his betrothed. Rebekah is supposed to marry the son of the chief rabbi of the Paris synagogue in a marriage arranged by her grandfather, but she is determined not too. Pierre tells them that he and Rebekah arranged for Pierre to abduct her on the journey to Paris and that Rebekah had told him that the rug was part of her dowry and she had had some men deliver it.
Pierre locks Jamie and Ian in the wine cellar where they help themselves to the wine. That night Rebekah and Pierre are married in his garden in accordance with proper Jewish custom and the Law. They get Jamie and Ian to witness the wedding so they can tell Dr. Hasdi.
