Summary
In 7th century Northumbria, a young woman is torn between her deepest beliefs and her desire to belong in a changing world. Wilona, the lone survivor of a plague that has wiped out her people, makes her way to a new life in the village of Ad Gefrin, where she is apprenticed to Touilt, a revered healer and seeress. As an outsider, she is viewed with suspicion by all except Margawn, a warrior in the lord's hall. When the king proclaims a conversion to the new Christian religion, Ad Gefrin becomes a dangerous place for Wilona and Touilt. Wilona must battle for survival, dignity and love against overwhelming odds
