Description
Some things are unthinkable! Impossible. Certainly, it was impossible that Tanya would go to the market with her parents one rainy Saturday and return an orphan! Her parents would come home. She would turn down the offers of the villagers that descended to help her, wishing to take her back to their homes and take her farm away. But, all alone, what was Tanya to do? Whom would she trust? Whom could she fear? With only her cow. Milenka, by her side, how would this eleven-year-old girl survive the greedy villagers and the mysterious gypsies?

She would become the Muffin Child.

In this remarkable novel of survival, Stephen Mennick creates a story that is both original and hauntingly beautiful.
