From the best-selling author of Witches of Eilean.
Once there was a gypsy queen who wore on her wrist a chain of six lucky charms. The queen gave each her six children one of the charms as their lucky talisman, but ever since the chain was broken, the gypsies had been dogged with misfortune. Sussex was the first county secured by the Roundheads because of its iron foundries.
Here in the Weald, the Smith tribe are working for Parliament, making cannons and weaponry. They have prospered under Cromwell's rule, and have no interest in old gypsy charms. Amidst the smoke and noise of the Horsmonden foundry, Emilia and Luka run into old friends - and old enemies.
