‘your Gypsy loves you so much he’s ready to put his head in a noose for you!’

1922: Harvest time in the Chilterns. A Gypsy falls in love with a lonely girl in a close-knit Evangelical community. Opposed on all sides, they risk losing everything – perhaps even their lives.

Set between rural Oxfordshire and Canterbury in the aftermath of World War I, this is a cross-cultural love story with a strong sense of time and place.

‘A richly evoked, completely involving story of love, loss and redemption. So satisfying.’ Liz Woodcraft, author of The Girls from Greenway

‘Katie Hutton transports you to a forgotten England in this poignant story of star-crossed lovers. A triumph!’ Catherine Kullman, author of The Gracechurch Trilogy

‘A moving love story, brilliantly depicting the dynamic between settled communities and Gypsies’ Patricia O’Reilly, author of The First Rose of Tralee

‘A family saga that had me hooked from the first page’ Lynn Johnson, author of The Girl from the Workhouse
