"Refreshingly honest and elegantly written." -Horn Book, starred review
France, 1531. Fifteen-year-old Sylvie has run away from her home village. Martin, who's only eight and stubborn, has followed her, insisting that he won't let her go alone -- and anyway, he wants to see the world!
She can't go home, though. Not yet. Because Sylvie has a strange healing power that she is only beginning to understand. And she needs a teacher who will help her learn to undo what she did before she left . . . and how to make sure she becomes who she's meant to be: a magical healer. A wise-woman.
But there's more to learn than magic, out in the world.
"I don’t know if I have literary influences. Probably. But I know for sure that several books I read early on were (for good or bad) life influences: The Cat in the Hat, Harriet the Spy, A Little Princess, Far From the Madding Crowd, and Jane Eyre.”
