In A.D. 412 Alexandria, against the backdrop of a city torn by religious and political strife, Selene struggles to achieve her dream of becoming a physician-an unlikely goal for an upper class Christian girl. Hypatia, the famed Lady Philosopher of Alexandria and the Prefect Orestes offer their patronage and protection. But will it be enough to save Selene from murderous riots, the machinations of a charismatic bishop and-most dangerous of all-her own impulsive nature?
