The Bloodletter's Daughter - Linda Lafferty - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of The Bloodletter's Daughter:

 Leeching a cure for Don Julius.

My favorite quote from the book:

"Declare not what you are, not what you have to be, but what you want to be."

Questions to ponder while reading The Bloodletter's Daughter:

Have you ever believed in the wrong person?

What are the duties of a mother?

My thoughts about The Bloodletter's Daughter:

An easy story to engage in.

Historical fiction at its most fun.

I, too, am intrigued by the Voynich Manuscript.
