Name this Science Fiction book! Recently translated to english from a european language (german?) out in hardcover. Protagonist is an italian woman living in a post catastrophe europe. Primary plot mover is time-travel/many worlds machine. She travels back to the middle ages and engages with a philosopher/academic/monastic (after getting burned at the stake on at least one attempt)

Bonus question: another book. children receive specific instructions to simple machine that allows them to shift to alternate worlds. Many children build it and disappear, but are terrified, vomit upon arrival, and need to be rescued by one child (protagonist) who follows the proper instructions and is able to rescue the rest. Secondary protagonist is female police officer.
