A smart woman. The world's most exclusive boys-only club. A quick rise to the top, but can she keep her secret to stay there?

Some historians believe that the Catholic church has "edited" its lineage of popes to hide the existence of a female pope during the middle ages. This is a fictional account of what a female pope's life might have been like.

The dialects described in the book are difficult to read, but well worth plowing through. A hard book to put down!
