Publisher's Summary

In the fourteenth century, opportunities for women are limited to the home. But spirited young Madlen finds her calling as assistant to the city's trusted midwife, Clara. Working alongside Clara, Madlen develops a surprisingly soothing technique and quickly becomes a talented healer.
After Clara's tragic death, Madlen alone rushes to assist the birth of a local nobleman's child. But rather than the joy of birth, Madlen walks into an accusation of murder and witchcraft because of her extraordinary gifts. Forced to flee her own town, she establishes a new identity in the home of her aunt. Yet even though it endangers her life, she cannot resist the urge to help the sick patients who seek out her miraculous treatment. When she meets handsome Johannes - an investigator hired by the Church to bring her to justice for sacrilegious acts - she becomes drawn to the very man that could destroy her.
Will Madlen's gifts bring about her downfall? Or can love and reason prevail in a time of fearful superstition?

The outstanding courage of women

I felt like I was right there , to the point of being sick to my stomach in some of the chapters. History has repeatedly shown us that fear and ignorance of those things that people don't understand, have always cost innocent women pain and their lives.

First book I read where lies were the norm

Especially so for a book that spoke of the Bible, faith and God. I think there where lies on every page. Disappointed.
