    Ellen Gilchrist
Gilchrist's lyrical new novel is quite a departure for the National Book Award winner. In ancient Greece, at the time when Pericles ruled Athens and Sparta's warriors presented a formidable threat to the status quo, a slave girl named Auria has the good fortune to be apprenticed to a learned herbalist, Philokrates. This volatile age, fraught with danger, is the setting for Auria's escape. When the beloved old man dies, Auria rescues an infant that has been cast out by its parents to die and finds her way to freedom. It is a resilient spirit that leads Auria to overcome all obstacles on a treacherous journey into the mountains. This uplifting tale of a valiant young woman is rich in historical nuance, but should have broad appeal to fans of Gilchrist's fiction. -- Booklist
