Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "Sylvie and her mother and grandmother are beloved, trusted healers in their French village at the end of the Middle Ages, though some whisper that fifteen-year-old Sylvie and her grand-mère deal in more than herbs and medicines. Perhaps they're a bit . . . witchy? After her grandmother dies, and an attempt to use her untrained magic to heal her mother's grief yields tragic consequences, Sylvie leaves in search of a teacher. Accompanied by Martin, the farrier's youngest son, Sylvia finds herself n a journey rife with strange alliances, powerful temptations, danger, and deceit. In the end, there may be only one wisewoman Sylvie can trust in a world that would define her limits: herself."--Page [2] of cover.
