Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0671432729, Hardcover)

Emma inherited her father's skill with the whips and knives which he used in his act in an early-Victorian travelling show. This strange legacy was to play a significant part in shaping Emma's destiny after she'd been orphaned at seven and sent to live with an unknown grandmother in County Durham.
