The monarch wants to capture Armande to feed his ailing progeny, while peasants, who believe she is a witch, want her dead. Amid the fast-spreading rumours, Céleste, an orphan whose life Armande once saved, sees danger growing for the wet nurse and vows to protect her. Nefarious forces kidnap Armande nonetheless, forcing Celeste to risk her life in a fearless attempt to save Armande--and France itself--from the potential evil of pure Machiavellian rationalism. Using Armandes diary as a treasure trove of clues to a hidden past, Céleste uncovers Armandes secrets and seeks to save her from forces that wish to possess Armande and steal the magic and wisdom of her milk.
