About this product
- DescriptionIn 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 bleman'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 cant 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?
