Moments after she is born, Tessa Barcussy is branded as ‘trouble’. The day she is born, her father Freddie encounters a Romany Gypsy who makes a chilling prediction about Tessa’s destiny. Freddie finds it so disturbing that he writes it down and hides it in a sealed envelope – never to be opened, he hopes. Yet the gypsy’s words haunt him as he bonds with his new baby daughter. Hyper-sensitive and rebellious, Tessa grows up a misfit, difficult to handle and disruptive. Will the words of the Romany Gypsy come true? Or will they empower Tessa to finally become the person she was born to be?
