A Dragonfly in Winter (The Innocenti Saga Book 3)


A Dragonfly in Winter can be read as a standalone novel.

The healers are no more.

Since Ginevra Innocenti’s death, the cottage has lain empty and abandoned in the woods.

Until the day Ginevra’s granddaughter, Sara, sees the dragonfly in the depths of winter. Intrigued, she follows it through the woods and discovers the forgotten cottage. When Simone, the head groom, tells her that her grandmother was a healer, a series of events is set in motion which could lead to the end of the Innocenti.

Long-hidden secrets are revealed, making Sara doubt everything she once believed in. Her mind in turmoil, she no longer knows whether she can ever truly be a healer. Disowned by her parents, it’s time to make a difficult decision.

But when there are rumours of an uprising in the village, Sara fears for her parents and her future. Will the curse of the Innocenti strike the family once more?

Set in the late 1800s in the mountains of Tuscany, A Dragonfly in Winter is the third book in the Innocenti Saga, and the first of a series of novellas about the healers.
