Summary (From the publisher):

Jehan nervously awaits the dawn in a dark alley, watching for the boy she knows will assault her, unsure if she will use the dagger in her sleeve ... this decision will determine which of the many futures from her visions will come to pass. Life on the streets as a defiled woman ... beheading in the public square ... or assistant to the German physicist who buys her life from the executioner's sword.
