The Magic Ring
In the palm of her hand Angela Gambrell held THE MAGIC RING. It was a gift from across the seas from the parents she had not seen since their return to Italy ten years before she had been only eight. The ring was a symbol of the love her father and mother bore her though an ocean separated them. It was a luck ring, her father wrote, that she must wear it always. Angela slipped it on her finger and made a promise to herself. She would find her parents once again, even if she had to deft the secret societies that held Italy in terror, even if she must risk her very life.
