Wicked wee Kelpie"" is a charming, lovable -- albeit amoral-- gypsy in 17th century Scotland. She deceives, steals, and lies her way around the Highlands. Kelpie wants more than anything to be a witch so she can curse everyone she hates, but she settles for second sight which enables her to see events in the future. All is well until Kelpie gets involved with a noble Scottish family. Her carefree life begins its demise when Kelpie allows herself to become attached to her family. Soon she begins to worry about her values and before long she doesn't even want to be a witch. A frisky story with the lilt of a Scottish melody and the spirit of a Highland clan.
