Laurel A. Rockefellerabout this book: Ripped from the headlines, The Poisoned Ground is a prequel novella to "The Ghosts of the Past." Set shortly after the founding of Nan-li Central Healing Centre (the same healing centre employing Lord Healer Devon of house Ten-Ar in chapter one of the Ghosts of the Past), it is the story of the hospital's founder, Lady Abbess Cara of house Ten-Ar.
When a sudden plague of cancers strikes Nan-li City, Lady Abbess Cara flies across Beinan to investigate. But finding the answers and helping the sick is not easy, not when the Beinarian political machine gets involved, putting the life and liberty of the noble abbess in jeopardy. As Cara finds herself ensnared by the tyrannical King Gareth, she finds allies—and love—in unexpected places and learns that assault—even by the king himself—is never acceptable.
It's a fight for survival for both the abbess and the people of Nan-li City in this unforgettable environmental mystery-detective story set eight hundred yen-ars before "The Great Succession Crisis."
