The exquisite Frederica der Esslingen fled from the castle to the herbalist's cottage. Rica could never give in to her father's wishes and marry the man her twin sister loved. Another man, a stranger, sent her blood racing and understood her bold searching heart. Yet he was denied her forever.

Son of a wealthy merchant, and determined to become a physician, Solomon had come to study the herbalist's art. It was there, in a wild garden, that he first set eyes on Rica. Her golden-haired beauty and bold spirit bewitched him. As plague ravaged Europe, he struggled against his passion, risking his life for the woman he longed to hold in his arms forever.

"An exquisite tale of star-crossed lovers and a passion that would not die. With her unique and lyrical style, Barbara Samuel touches every emotion. The quiet brilliance of her story lingered in my mind long after the book was closed." - Susan Wiggs
