In feudal England, a 16-year-old girl is mastering the healing arts as an apprentice of Hospice de Coeur Rouge, known as the Red Heart Healers by the local peasantry. Her life is turned upside-down after discovering a handsome, gravely wounded knight in the forest. Who is this mysterious warrior? She uses herbs and the techniques passed down through the centuries to treat his wounds, but he warns her to flee immediately -- or risk death. She embarks upon an epic journey to the south, guided by friends and accompanied by her horse and hounds. She soon discovers a new danger -- and new clues about her own family history.
"Soulene: A Healer's Tale" is Book I of author Ursula Pearson's Soulene Trilogy. Using a backdrop of 12th-century English and French history, she weaves a fascinating tale about a young woman discovering her identity in troubled times.

I really enjoyed the history in Soulene: A Healer's Tale--particularly the Red Heart Healers. The story has an interesting plot, but the author's style of writing was a little too dry and factual to really pull me in. I would have liked to feel the characters' emotions and senses more clearly. I would like to read the next book in the series to see where the plot leads, but not with the urgency I've felt when reading other series. Overall, I found Soulene to be a good read, but not a great read. I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
