This refreshing historical fiction takes us to a time and situation not often represented in teen literature–1241 France, where an innkeeper and her sisters find Dolssa, a young woman branded a heretic for her religious “gift” for healing. These strong, independent sisters find themselves and their town in grave danger as they protect Dolssa from a vengeful friar looking to burn her as a heretic.
Berry does a fantastic job illuminating a dusty medieval topic with vibrant color and life. The town is full of dynamic, relatable characters and the story is steeped in historical detail and intrigue.
