SECONDHAND CHARM BY JULIE BERRYPublished October 12th 2010 by Bloomsbury USA Children's Books
In a secluded village, magic sparkles on the edges of the forest. There, 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 Evie ties them around her neck. Her talents, and charms, 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 . . .
Berry's debut novel garnered glowing reviews and strong sales—and now she's done it again with a beautifully woven tale to keep all readers, young and old, absolutely charmed.
I love vampires, werewolves, faeries, etc but it' s also nice to have some other books coming out that are completely different. I love the themes of gypsy magic. And sounds like there's a love triangle too. Even better!
