Orphaned Matilda is not at all pleased when she arrives at Blood and Bone Alley to become an assistant to Red Peg the Bonesetter. She is a religious, well-educated girl who can’t picture herself doing dirty chores or helping sickly patients. 

Each day is very different from her former quiet life. Matilda’s not used to being around so many people who are coming and going, laughing and eating. Not one of them seems interested in prayer or study. 

Self-centered Matilda thinks no one understands her. But Peg does, and gives her time to get used to this new way of life and teaches her through kindness and friendship. Matilda is as surprised as anyone when she begins seeing the world around her in a different way.

    " This Book is HYSTERICAL!!!! It's really good. Especially if you have kids 8 years old or older. But you have to listen to on tape. Thats the best way, then you get all of the funniness. "

    " A charming and entertainingly educational tale out of the middle ages. Thank goodness for modern medicine. "

    " This is the story of the orphan Matilda, a girl raised by a priest in a medieval manor house. She reads, knows every saint of the church, and speaks Latin, but possess few skills that will help her when she becomes Red Peg's apprentice. Karen Cushman always has the most wonderful characters, and she has done it again with this book. "

    " The book was a little boring in the beginning, as it didn't quite grab my attention there, but it started getting better in the middle. I didn't quite get the whole story except the fact that (view spoiler)[ there is a girl that got sent to be the apprentice of a bonesetter (hide spoiler)] and I also thought that there wasn't exactly a main point in the story until I got to the end. I started getting the whole point of the story near the end, so I wish I got the point a lot sooner. "
