From the author of Vivaldi's Virgins...

What does a girl do when she finds the love of her life while disguised as a boy—when divulging her secret could cause her to be burned at the stake as a witch?

A Golden Web bookcover

In Medieval Emilia-Romagna, girls are powerless to choose or change their fate—and yet Alessandra, brilliant and brave, is determined to find a way. Disguising her gender, she sets out to infiltrate and conquer the all-male world of medical school.

In this exquisite retelling of a centuries-old story, Alessandra Giliani, the world’s first female anatomist, claims her rightful place among our most endearing and enduring heroines.

Researched with the same meticulous care and rendered with the same vividness and poignancy as her internationally bestselling novel Vivaldi’s Virgins, Barbara Quick’s first young adult title is a tale to encourage and inspire readers of all ages.
