Weight of a Flame CoverStatus: Available

Book Description

Olympia Morata (1526–1555) is her father’s finest student and a girl far ahead of her time. A quick tongue and a ready pen are her mind’s tools to record her vivid thoughts, poetry, songs, and opinions. Appointed tutor to Duchess Renee’s children, Olympia looks forward to a bright future—when suddenly, evil rumors threaten to turn her world upside down. In the midst of it all a young doctor comes courting. Will their love survive the danger waiting on the other side of the Alps?

The Chosen Daughters series highlights the lives of ordinary women who by God’s grace accomplish extraordinary things.
