Self-centered Matilda has to go and work with a healer; work that she finds beneath her, but Red Peg wisely lets her help until she begins to look at the patients as individuals and sees how she can make them feel better. The story is told with vivid images from Medieval days which make history come alive. This book is great for older children and young adults of any age.
