It is the fifth year of the Lord Protector's rule and while life has always been hard for the gypsies, since Oliver Cromwell has seized control of England, life has become harder than ever.
13th-14th August 1658: Emilia and her cousin Luka have the old gold coin, the gypsy crown, but are travelling with their menagerie of animals in search of the Hearne tribe hoping that this family, to whom they will soon be related, will surely help release their kin from gaol.
Luka and Emilia find the Hearnes horseracing on the Downs above Epsom. But Emilia must compete to win their support. Will she have to give up her beloved mare in exchange for the Hearne family's charm - a small silver horse? And can they escape Coldham again?
The second book in this exciting six-book series about the adventures of tow daring children, a monkey, a dog and a dancing bear in search of the chain of charms.
