#1 New York Times bestselling author Philippa Gregory weaves an unforgettable tale of a young woman’s sorcery and desire in Henry VIII’s England, where magic, lust, and power are forever intertwined. Growing up as an abandoned outcast on the moors, young Alys’ only company is her cruel foster mother, Morach, the local wise woman who is whispered to practice the dark arts. Alys joins a nunnery to escape the poverty and loneliness she has felt all her life, but all too soon her sanctuary is destroyed. King Henry VIII’s followers burn the holy place to the ground, and Alys only just manages to escape with her life, haunted by the screams of her sisters as they burned to death. She finds work in a castle not far from where she grew up as an old lord’s scribe, where she falls obsessively in love with his son Hugo. But Hugo is already married to a proud woman named Catherine. Driven to desperation by her desire, she summons the most dangerous powers Morach taught her, but quickly the passionate triangle of Alys, Hugo, and Catherine begins to explode, launching them into uncharted sexual waters. The magic Alys has conjured now has a life of its own—a life that is horrifyingly and disastrously out of control. Is she a witch? Since heresy means the stake, and witchcraft the rope, Alys is in mortal danger, treading a perilous path between her faith and her own power.

Am Ende ihres Lebens wird Alma auf ein großes Jahrhundert zurückblicken. Sie wird in die Aufbruchsphase Amerikas geboren, die Welt wird erforscht und erobert, Altes durch Neues abgelöst. Ihr umtriebiger Vater ist mit Pflanzenhandel reich geworden und der jungen Alma wird es an nichts fehlen, auch nicht an Bildung. Und so wächst sie zwischen den Pflanzen der prächtigen Gewächshäuser heran. Ihre ganze Leidenschaft gilt der Natur, und während ihrer Studien, die sie ihr ganzes Leben begleiten, gelingen ihr ähnlich revolutionäre Einsichten, wie sie dann Charles Darwin der Welt vorführen wird. Doch Alma selbst zweifelt an ihren Erkenntnissen. Gibt es eine wissenschaftliche Erklärung, warum sich der Mensch nach Liebe sehnt? Was ist Liebe überhaupt? Warum sind wir selbstlos und uneigennützig, wie ihre Adoptivschwester Prudence, die schon früh sich für die Befreiung der Sklaven einsetzt? Alma wird Antworten finden, ebenso wie die Liebe.
