"A father weaves a magical tale for his daughter to justify his unlicensed plastic surgery practice, tracing the origins of cosmetic surgery to craftsmen in medieval Europe. The hero of this tale is Gavin, a young orphan rescued from the Ivanhoe Workhouse for Criminally Impoverished Boys when he is apprenticed with the local Nosemaker. Gavin becomes one of the finest surgeons in Vienna, using innovative skin grafting techniques and cutting-edge alchemy, but when he is unable to help a powerful and mutilated knight recently returned from the crusades, he finds his feet over the fire… literally."
