What do a wealthy woman, a priest, a knight, and a child have in common? They're part of, "The Gifted." They share a 5,000 year old secret, and it's time for it to be exposed. The church wants to keep it under wraps, while evil people want to subvert and use it.
This suspenseful tale, set in Italy during 1339, kept my heart in my mouth. Who would triumph? How could a small band overcome the powerful forces seeking to destroy them?
