“Lady Patience Blakwell is besieged with trouble. Wed at sixteen to a cruel old man, her life takes a turn for the worse when her husband dies and her stepson accuses her of his father's murder. The stepson withholds money, too. Nevertheless, when a badly beaten gypsy collapses at her door, Lady Patience takes him in.
Luca, the gypsy, had an English father who abandoned him and his mother. As a result, he mistrusts anyone who is English. Embracing his Rom ancestry, he is the leader of his tribe. However, he learns from Patience that strength can come from more than well-muscled sinews and that peace can only be sought by forgiveness.
Truly a heart-warming story and worth reading!”
