BY Ann turner
Taunted because of a harelip, Anne has to flee her village, leaving behind everyone and all she has grown to love and hate there. It does not matter the Baron died from the sickness that is sweeping the land, the villagers of Foxleigh blame Anne’s curse. For months she is forced to hide in the great marsh far from home, spending lonely days in solitude. But Anne refuses to give up and spends her days trapping her food and gathering herbs as Gran had taught her – all the while looking ahead to the day when it would be safe to return.
