Daniel  Wolf - The Gift of Heaven
 
 
 

 

A dangerous love. A fateful task. An epochal war.

AD 1346. The young merchant's son Adrien Fleury is studying medicine in Montpellier and is dreaming of a career as a doctor. When he returns to Varennes-Saint-Jacques he scarcely recognises his home town. Wealthy patricians are ruthlessly exercising their power as rulers. The simple people are rebelling against suppression and low wages. The Jews are suffering from hate and ostracism.

When Adrien starts his work as a surgeon he meets Léa, a Jewish girl running her father's apothecary. They fall in love, thus putting themselves in great danger. Then the Black Death comes to Varennes and rages in the town, and Adrien's skills are put to a tough test …
