Magic sparkles on the edges of the forest in a secluded village where a young girl named Evie possesses unusually strong powers as a healer. A gypsy's charms-no more than trinkets when
worn by others-are remarkably potent when tied around Evie's neck. Her talents have not escaped the notice of the shy stonemason's apprentice. But Evie wants more than a quiet village and the boy next door. When the young king's carriage arrives one day, and his footman has fallen ill, Evie might just get her chance after all. . . .
