SECONDHAND CHARM by Julie Berry
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 . . .
I recently read Julie Berry's The Amaranth Enchantment and was swept off my feet. Don't have to wait too long for this one, which is good, because I can't want to see if Berry can woo me with her second book!
