Description of this Book

'The two sisters slept in the same bed, hugging one another for comfort and warmth. It'll be so cold on the road, Ella said. Anything has to be better than staying here, Kath pointed out. She thought of a town far away her mother had told her about. Their friends would be gathered as they did most winters, but it was a very long way from here. She tried not to dwell on that problem as they set off.' When their mother dies and their father, in his grief, burns down their wagon and runs away, Kath and Ella - gypsy sisters - suddenly become orphans. With no one to turn to for help, they face hardship and prejudice at every turn. Will the bond between the two sisters be enough to see them safely through? From the bestselling author of Miss Appleby's Academy and Far From My Father's House comes a heartwarming tale of family and overcoming adversity.
