Summary (From the publisher):

In vengeance against a corrupt society, a woman vows to raise her child to be a genius.

Birthed into perfect love, reared in isolation, the little girl Vulcasa´s does indeed become a prodigy. Her strange education is intended to prepare her for an astonishing destiny: to distill the elixir that will crystallize into the Philosopher's Stone - the very root of all knowledge. But as word of her miraculous intellect and magical talent spreads, luminaries of the day - from Havelock Ellis to Freud to H.G. Wells, and others - begin lobbying to influence her development. And as Vulcasa´s matures, so does a spiritual struggle within her between her dedication to the Work for which she was conceived and her fatal attraction to the all-to-human world she hears tell of.
