Publisher's Summary

In 13th-century Cornwall, on a sheep farm in the shadow of Bury Down - known for a thousand years as the land of the second sight - a healer has vowed to face flames rather than fail in her one task in this life: to bring her young daughter to vow to protect The Book of Seasons, an ancient grimoire whose power sustains the spirits of all their ancestors.  

On the night of her vow-taking, wanting only to become a woman of Bury Down like her mother and aunts, and drawn by an inexplicable yearning to possess her mother’s book, Megge reaches for it. But when she touches its cover, it burns her fingers and she hears it whisper, “Murderer.” Fearing that the book will make her harm those she loves, she rejects it and renounces her birthright.  

To what lengths will Megge’s mother go to help the child find the courage to take that vow? And how far will Megge go to elude a terrifying destiny?

The Power of Women

In the 13th century, powerful women who refused to submit to power did so under constant threat of torture and death. In this story of a child destined to guard great power, Ms. Kightlinger has used real history to create a world in which what some call fantasy is only one more aspect of daily life. This is fantasy for people who don't read fantasy, and a must-read for anyone seeking characters who rise into reality strong and full of life. Best of all, it's suitable for young readers, and highly recommended. Just be ready for their questions.
