Set in Stone Stela BrinzeanuForbidden love in Moldova


 by  Stela Brinzeanu 


In medieval Moldova, two women from opposing backgrounds fall in love.

But this is a world where a woman’s role is defined by religion and class. To make a life together means defying their families, the law, and the Church. The closer they become, and the more they refuse the roles assigned to them, the more sacrifices they have to make.



Some fine books to read this summer, don’t you agree?
