Sarah's heart is troubled. The more she finds out about the Church of Saint Teresu, the more she is angered by the brutal way it exploits the young women who belong to it. And there is one girl who will not leave her mind. Has she finally found her missing daughter? But unbeknownst to Sarah or the death-obsessed Saint Teresu, other forces are closing in. The commander of the garrison has decided the church is undermining the morale of his soldiers, and he's ready to take steps to put an end to it.
