    Roberta Rich burst onto the literary scene with this fascinating tale of intrigue set in 16th-century Venice. Working in the Venetian ghetto, midwife Hannah Levi has developed a gift for aiding desperate mothers. When a wealthy count seeks her help in the delivery of his first son, she sees an opportunity to earn the money needed to free her imprisoned husband. But with a papal edict forbidding Jews from providing medical aid to Christians, Hannah is torn between duty and the law - and her choice will put her in the middle of a dangerous conflict.
