    the Burning Times by Jeanne Kalogridis.
    Carcassonne, France, October, 1357: Michel is a dedicated Dominican monk 
learning the rules of the Inquisition. He adheres to the church
    doctrine to rid it of heretics. In only his second inquisition, the scribe 
encounters Mother Marie Franchise (born Sybille) in the depths of a dungeon.
    She stands accused of witchcraft and will confess only to the novice. Over 
three days, she tells the story of Marie Sybille de Cavasulle, born with a caul
    over her face. She speaks of her grandmother's lessons in magic and 
healing, and talks of descending from a race of goddesses, all of which led her 
    her village to seek her future disguised as a nun searching for her people 
and her soul mate. In learning about her life, Michel learns about his identity.
    So begins an adventure full of dangers, mythology, witchcraft, and 
Gnosticism. Kalogridis re-creates with colorful accuracy the Inquisition, the 
    Death, and the Hundred Years' War.
