Synopsis

EXCLUSIVE TO BLACKWELL'S

What is the weight of the soul?
The cost of redemption?
The meaning of home?


Oxford, 1538

Sister Grace, Infirmaress of Godstow Nunnery, is faced with helping an unexpected guest: a half-drowned young woman, covered in garlands of flowers and herbs.

When the girl proves unusually adept at healing remedies, Sister Grace takes her on as an apprentice. But helping with an emergency amputation turns the girl's interest from matters herbal, to anatomical, as she is compelled to discover the seat of the soul...

A Gothic romance set in Tudor England's time of upheaval and uncertainty, Ophelia Swam is an illuminating tale of love, grief, and sisterhood, spanning generations of healers.
