I always felt most alive, when I was healing. Without healing I was a tin top spinning out of kilter soon to catch the ground. It took all my energy to hold myself from skidding into chaos.
But in the city of Pharsis traditional women healers are banned from practising and the penalty for breaking the law is death by hanging. After being arrested and interrogated twice, Judith is careful to avoid suspicion, but then scarlet fever breaks over the city like a poisonous wave, leaving in its wake the small corpses of children. What will the young healer do?
In this study in grief, love and defiance we follow Judith as she searches for ingredients to make perfumes and medicines, for her place in a man's world, and for the love and respect she needs and deserves.More info →
Judith may have stopped being a healer, but she has a loving husband, two boys and a successful business as a perfume maker. She’s content. So why does she keep having nightmares about falling?
