Description - And Tomorrow Is a Hawk by Kathryne Finn
The year is 1486 in England . . . A broken man remembers his few moments of glory . . . an illiterate woman carries a treasure in an old saddlebag . . . So begins the story of Julana Berners, the extraordinary daughter of an ancient family, whose idyllic childhood ends with the tragic loss of her beloved father, her ancestral home, even her ability to speak. A change of fortune brings her under the care and guidance of a queen. Then she meets a poet who teaches her that the way out of darkness can be found with a sharpened quill, a full inkwell, and blank parchment. Thus are born Julyana's chronicles, through which she carries us into the adventure and achievement of her long, remarkable life. It is a life that culminates when her words are set into type . . . making Julyana Berners the first woman to have her work printed in the English language.
