Inhaltsangabe: In 1831, sixteen year old gypsy Lily embarks on a journey to England in search of her parents after her gypsy grandmother reveals the truth about Lily's murky past. Lily learns that she was separated from her parents and captured by the gypsies as a child during the Greek revolutionary war.
Lily's gypsy background haunts her as she realizes how little she knows about being a lady. Once in England, she learns that her mother died during the Greek war, and her father is away in the Indies. Lily is sent to a boarding school in York, by her cousin, and there, falls in love with Edward Grant, an English lord, who he is engaged to another.
News of her father dying in a shipwreck sets Lily's whole world reeling. Penniless, she is forced to work to pay her tuition. Love wins the day, however, and a surprise ending will bring happiness to all.
This story will appeal to Jane Austen fans, with the morals and traditions of 19th century England.

Ten years later, she learns about her true identity from her gypsy grandmother and begins her search for her father, who is an English Lord and her mother, a Greek heiress. Her personal journey leads her to England, where she is informed by her cousin, Mrs. Bennington, that her father is away on a trip to the Indies and her mother presumably dead from the war. Lily is sent away to boarding school by Mrs. Bennington. There, she falls in love with Edward Grant, an English lord, but he is engaged to another. When Lily receives news that her father has died in a shipwreck, her whole world turns upside down. She has no funds and is forced to work as a maid to pay her tuition. Love wins the day, however, and a surprise ending will bring happiness to all.
