This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
When an accidental fire claims the life of both her parents, young Genevieve is apprenticed to the village midwife, the only person who is willing to take her in. But Goody has a reputation of being more than just an herb-woman; it's whispered that she's a witch, as well.
Before long, Genevieve realizes that Goody isn't the only one in the village who can do magic - she can too! Uncertain what this means, she turns to the adults around her for help. Goody, the midwife; Roland, the smith; and Father David, the village priest. All of them have different ideas about what she is and why she can do the things she can.
Genevieve must learn what she is, and how to control her powers. Not only that, but she must do it quickly, before the villagers decide for her . . . and take action.
