The Eretik: A Short Story
by J. Kathleen Cheney
Ivanka is a healer, a gift all the women of her family carry. But she's been accused of using that gift to kill her husband and is shunned by the townsfolk.
Now she's taken a lover, Li-huan, a foreign visitor. She doesn't intend to involve him in her troubles, but when her so-called husband comes out of his grave, Ivanka finds herself fighting for her life--and Li-huan's.
