When the sanctuary has to close, she is offered a job on the vast and isolatedKinnaird estate as a wildlife consultant by the elusive and troubled Laird, Charlie Kinnaird, she has noidea that the move will not only irrevocably alter her future, but ironically, bring her into contactwith her past. She meets Chilly, an ancient gipsy, who has lived for years on the estate, having fledfrom Spain seventy years before. He tells her that not only does she possess a sixth sense, passeddown from her gipsy ancestors, but it was foretold long ago that he would be the one to send herback home ...It is 1912 and, in the pitifully poor gipsy community that have been forced to make their homes forhundreds of years outside the city walls of Granada in the seven caves of Sacromonte, under theshadow of the magnificent Alhambra Palace, Lucía Amaya-Albaycin is born.
