In eighth-century Austrasia, a spirited girl in the town of Würzburg brashly defies convention by pursuing the time-honored art of parchment-making. But Theresa’s dreams are shattered when unimaginable tragedy strikes, forcing her to flee and tearing her family apart. Set adrift as a fugitive, Theresa relies on her uncommon education and the sympathy of strangers to survive. When she encounters Alcuin of York, a shrewd and influential monk with close ties to King Charlemagne, she hopes her luck might have finally changed. Yet all is not what it seems. As the mystery builds, Theresa discovers that the ultimate secret may reside in a parchment Charlemagne himself commissioned Theresa’s father to write. Thrust into a political web of deception and danger, the daring young woman must outmaneuver a monarch and risk the fate of an empire to save her family.

About the Author:

A native of Spain, a former educator, and industrial engineer, Antonio Garrido has received acclaim for the darkly compelling storytelling and nuanced historical details that shape his novel The Corpse Reader. This fictionalized account of the early life of Song Cí, the Chinese founding father of forensic science, represents the author’s years of research into cultural, social, legal, and political aspects of life in the Tsong Dynasty, as well as his extensive study of Song Cí’s own five-volume treatise on forensics. In 2012, The Corpse Reader received the Zaragoza International Prize for best historical novel published in Spain (Premio Internacional de Novela Histórica Ciudad de Zaragoza). Antonio’s previous novel, La Escriba, was published in 2008. Garrido currently resides in Valencia, Spain.
