A girl...A gypsy...A murder...A choice

The year is 1955. Eisenhower is president, the McCarthy hearings are over, and Lolly Candolin has given her alcoholic and abusive father an ultimatum to quit the bottle or she will shave her head. Refusing to have his life dictated by a ten-year-old child, her father wraps her aged cat-and best friend-in a burlap sack, and flings him from the high town levee down into a mysterious gypsy camp.

Rejecting everything she's been told by her father, Lolly secretly searches the gypsy camp for Bo. There she encounters a lively cast of misfits, including: Tick, a tomboy her own age; Sophia, Tick's mother and gifted healer; and Sam, the unofficial leader of Cougarville.

Soon, Lolly and her new friends are caught up in a maelstrom of murder and intrigue when the county sheriff is brutally murdered at a local saloon. All evidence points to Sam. Lolly's father, the county prosecutor with everything to lose, goes after the case full bore, determined to see Sam tried, convicted, and executed. During a clandestine mission to warn the Cougarville residents of her father’s ruthless intentions, Lolly discovers the identity of the true killer, putting into motion a terrible dilemma that no young girl should ever have to face. Revealing her evidence will not only set an innocent man free, but destroy her father’s career; and any chance of winning what she yearns for most: her father’s approval.
