A historical novel set in Troyes, France in 1283. Julietta wants to be a doctor but the eminent doctor she lives with doesn't want girls in his laboratory. Through perseverance and her own talents in healing people, she overcomes his opposition. Lore about medical practice of the period and herbal remedies is combined with a portrayal of aspects of medieval anti-Semitism and, in particular, how it affected Jewish doctors.
