Publisher's Summary

Agata flees from Verona to Venice with nothing but the clothes on her back. Accused of witchcraft, she prefers to risk the unknown than face the terrifying charge. Starving and cold, she wanders the streets in search of honest work, but her efforts are fruitless. She eventually finds temporary respite in the sordid world of prostitution, but the sobering reality of human cruelty destroys her innocence. 

Determined to secure her financial and social future, she aids the Veronese warlord Cangrande I della Scala in committing vile acts that will earn her a place in Hell. Although she is handsomely compensated, she wants more - and she'll do whatever it takes to get it.

Powerful

This is a gripping story about a young girl’s struggle for justice in a patriarchal society. Despite her ongoing obstacles, she overcomes in the end with sheer force of will. This is a powerful feminist example of using the strength of femininity to overcome the ignorance of the toxic masculine. A page turner!
