About this item
When Adam’s mother dies unconfessed, he pledges to save her soul with dust from the Holy Land.

Salim, a merchant’s son, is leading an uneventful life in the port of Acre—until news arrives that a Crusader attack is imminent. To keep Salim safe, his father buys him an apprenticeship with an esteemed traveling doctor.
