An outspoken midwife. A false imprisonment. Will one woman’s faith and courage be enough to tip the scales of justice?

London, 1679. Elizabeth Cellier is a loving wife, a friend to her neighbors, and a former midwife to the Queen. She’s brave in a time of fear, dedicating her free time to serving the unjustly persecuted. In an effort to improve the treatment of fellow Catholics, she ignores her husband’s warnings against befriending a connected debtor. But she never expected her quest for equal rights would unknowingly lure her into a plot against her beloved King…

Elizabeth finds herself in the same prison she sought to improve. With time running out before her trial, can the midwife defend herself in a court prejudiced against women, Catholics, and foreigners? If she fails, the punishment could claim her life…
