The year is 1241; the place, Provensa, what we now call Provence, France. A land still reeling from the bloody Crusades waged there by the Catholic Church, now in power.

Dolssa, a young gentlewoman from the city, is on the run from a rogue monk who wants to burn her as a heretic for her beliefs. Botille, a scrappy and charismatic peasant, is a matchmaker running a tavern with her two sisters in a tiny seaside village. When the matchmaker finds the mystic, half-dead beside a country road, she takes Dolssa in and discovers the girl’s extraordinary power to heal people. But the monk who pursues Dolssa will stop at nothing to find his heretic and see her burn, and the more Dolssa becomes a part of Botille’s family, the graver the danger becomes for the entire village.

From the author of the award-winning All the Truth That’s in Me comes a spellbinding tale that will keep you on the edge of your seat and make you wonder if miracles really are possible.
