Product description

Product Description

A thrilling historical novel by the author of The Secret Healer.

Cologne, 1351: Elisabeth and Stephen Hardenstein are twins, but they could not be more different. While Elisabeth is inspired by the family business, absorbing everything her father shows her about the cloth trade, Stephen enjoys a leisurely life and pays little attention to their father’s teachings. Elisabeth recognizes her true vocation as a tradeswoman, and though the odds are stacked against her, she pursues her passion.

When the twins’ father suffers a tragic stroke, the tables turn. Suddenly Stephen is interested in running the draper’s shop his father left behind, and he takes the lead in managing the family business. But Elisabeth can’t sit idly by and watch as he makes bad decisions and accumulates debts. Stephen pushes her to marry as soon as possible, even proposing a suitor, but Elisabeth has her own ideas about matters of the heart. Are her talents in the art of negotiation enough to win her both the job of her dreams and the man she truly loves?

Like the SECRET HEALER, by the same author, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The writing flows, even though it is a translation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Accurate depiction of a woman's lot in life during the Middle Ages. 19 December 2016

What I liked most about this book was the realistic depiction of life in the Middle Ages. Elizabeth was luckier than most of the women whose fates were totally at the mercy of their male relatives. Her brother is the epitome of the entitled their. Carsta did not shy away from the realities faced by Jews and women. This book was very enlightening. I received a complimentary copy of this book in a Goodreads giveaway in exchange for an honest review.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good plot but lacks historical detail 17 March 2017
By Peekablue - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
After reading Secret Healer by the same author, I decided to give this book a try. I enjoyed it very much, however, I was disappointed by the lack of historical detail. The story is supposed to take place in midieval Germany but could just as easily been set during the 19th Century and in any country. Beyond naming a few German cities, there was no indication of the location where things were taking place. The only real clue to the time frame is a mention of the Plague. Other than that, the story is not bad. It just needs to be fleshed out a little more.
