“Gabriella lived in Venice, where women in the 16th century had roles strictly limited by the church and custom. Gabriella was her father's protege, however, and he taught her to follow in his footsteps as a physician, a role usually not allowed women. Then her father disappeared. After awaiting his return and forbidden to practice in his absence, Gabriella follows in her father's footsteps once again, this time on an epic adventure across Europe and into Africa to bring him home. An unforgettable debut!”
