The Mandrake’s Heart

1492: Having narrowly escaped being burned at the stake in Ravensburg, midwife Luzia Gassner is studying medicine at the prestigious Montpellier University disguised as a man. With her cover in danger of being blown, she escapes to her home town on the shores of Lake Constance in the most adventurous manner. She takes a position as a gynaecologist in the newly founded hospital in Überlingen, working side by side with physician Johannes von der Wehr, who so happens to be her former lover. When the two of them botch a caesarean section – a strictly prohibited procedure – Lucia, meanwhile pregnant, is forced to flee once again.

Press acclaim for Seelenfeuer:

„This book is action-packed from start to finish. Every thought, every sentence becomes fate, is turned into action, brutal or beauteous“ Martin Walser

448 pages, ISBN 978-3-423-26081-7
