The Crimson Ribbon by Katherine Clements

This story is set in England in 1646 and is set amid the war and witch hunting of that time. The main character of the story is a young girl called Ruth Flowers. Ruth's mother is a healer and at this time in history this was a risky profession to practise as it was often confused with being a witch. As Ruth often helped her mother she learned a lot and became gifted  at healing herself . The  story begins with a horrific event in Ruth's life that will take her away from her home and all those she knew best. Finding a new life in London leads her to meet new people that help her in life and a very special woman with whom she forms a close special bond . But Ruth's past is trying to catch up with her all the time and she lives in fear for herself and those around her ,making this a very exciting read . 
I really enjoyed this story, the historical aspects and the illicit relationship between Ruth and her friend Lizzie, it was fascinating reading about how women were treated back then. When I started this I did not put it down until I had it finished , it is one of those books that just don't let you stop reading! This is a must read for all fans of historical fiction .
