The Folk Keeper by Franny Billingsley
After years in orphanages, Corinna has traded in her skirts and scrubbing floors to become Corin and a Folk Keeper. For four years she’s tended to the Folk with no formal education, which is open only to boys, but with a quick wit and every scrap of information she could overhear. Now, at almost sixteen, she’s called by a mysterious lord who knows her secret and offers to make her a proper lady. She declines, but accepts a place as Folk Keeper at his manor as Corin. There she discovers she’s not the only one with secrets, and the secrets at Marblehaugh Park are far more dangerous than her quick growing hair or perfect sense of time.
This enchanting tale of magic and mystery is recommended for grades 4 and up.
