Summary from Good Reads:
 
“Breathe. No one will break me. I’m strong. Breathe. Just breathe.”
On the outside, Willow appears to have it all. She’s beautiful, smart, from an influential family, and she dates the most popular guy in school—Jaden. But she would walk away from it all in a second. Willow is tormented by lies and suffocating guilt, not the hearts and flowers people believe her life is full of. 
She carries a dark secret. Plagued by nightmares and pain, the secret dominates her life. If she hadn’t walked away. If she had just… but she didn’t. And now she has to live with her choices. But when someone uncovers her family’s past, they use it against her, crushing her spirit little by little. She tells herself she just has to make it to graduation. Then she can leave Middleton, and her secret, far behind.
When Brody transfers to Cassidy High, he turns Willow’s life upside down. He shows her what it feels like to live again, really live. And suddenly, she isn’t satisfied with just surviving until graduation. She wants a normal life—with Brody—and he wants her. But the closer they become, the more it threatens to unravel the secret she’s worked so hard to hide.
Willow finds true love with Brody. Will she let his love save her, or walk away from him to keep her secret safe?

In the late twelfth or early thirteenth century a psalter was made at a Benedictine abbey in Augsburg, Germany.  The Romanesque illuminations decorating the manuscript are believed to have been created by three or four different artists.  One illumination in particular stands out, a young girl in secular dress swinging from the letter Q.  The name “Claricia” is written by her head.  Art historian Dorothy E. Miner suggested that it was self-portrait of a lay student at the convent. 

The Claricia Psalter is held by the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore (tumblr), but it is not currently on view.  If you’re in the Baltimore area and are interested in medieval manuscripts, the current (free) exhibit at the Walters Art Museum is “Seeing Music in Medieval Manuscripts.”  The exhibit runs through October 12, 2014.
