Woven within the harsh realities of pre-Civil War South Carolina is an unexpected, mystical tale of gypsies and fairies. These
seemingly disparate environments are deftly blended with a strong rhythm and lyrical style that keep the reader flowing emotionally and seamlessly from one reality to the next and back. A young girl, Marka, is the Irish Traveller that carries us through the story. But this is not a nursery book. No fairy dust and tiny wings. And yet it is infused with magic and beauty - while effortlessly layered with the complexities of freedom, human rights, justice, and life decisions. A warm story of innocence andtruth and the power of our beliefs and love for one another.
