2018 Best First Book in Fiction Winner - Independent Publisher Book Awards (IPPY).

In the Shadow of Light is a riveting magical tale of a gifted young woman in 17th century Italy.

A pestilence of sinister origin ravages Tuscany. The bustling city of Florence is crippled and Vittoria Giordano--a wool merchant's daughter--is forced to flee, seeking safety in the countryside. What she discovers instead is a world teeming with danger, deception, and witches.

Devastating heartbreak leads Vittoria to accept sanctuary among a clan of Benedanti Strega. Their mystical influence is a catalyst for exposing the lie upon which her family legacy is built. When Vittoria inadvertently draws the attention of vengeful Malandanti, the long shadow of the witch-hunting Inquisition creeps ever closer.

As retribution for an unforgivable act against them, the Malandanti intend to cast Florence into darkness and chaos forever. The only one who can summon the power to stop them is Vittoria--she just doesn't know it yet. Until then, her salvation lies in the hands of an unlikely trio of rabble-rousing cousins and a plague doctor.

Readers of books in the tradition of author Deborah Harkness (All Souls Trilogy) will enjoy this wonderful blending of history, mystery, magic, and witches.

Book one of the Shadow of Light trilogy.
