Tashi Balakar discovers at an early age that she lives in a world controlled by men and that her brother, Anatol, is blessed with freedoms she is denied. This story chronicles the lives of both after having been separated in their youth following the death of their father. Tashi challenges the authority of the Church and the Roman Empire when she declares she will be neither wife nor concubine. The terrible price she pays for her march to destiny shows the magnificent spirit of one young Egyptian woman of the fourth century. Years later, Tashi and Anatol, each assuming the other to be dead, meet in a terrific clash of wills as he sits in judgment of her on the charges of witchcraft and heresy. He is totally unaware that she is his sister. The dramatic conclusion of this confrontation has profound implications on the history of Western civilization. [via]
