Dekker and Healy's second collaboration is a true stunner. The plot grabs the reader from the first page, then an amazing twist brings out the deeper meaning of the storyline. Set in the fascinating world of American gypsies, this
is a stellar novel that will stay with the reader for a long time.
Janeal Mikkado, the daughter of the leader of the gypsy kumpania, has struggled to balance her commitment to her friends and family with her desire to make a name for herself in the world. She becomes aware of a plot in the camp and discovers the location of $1 million -- enough to start a new life. When the camp is attacked and set on fire, Janeal must decide whether to escape with the money or to stop to save her friend Katie's life. It's a decision that will shape the remainder of Janeal's life. (THOMAS NELSON, Jan., 382 pp., $24.99)
