Barbara Casey Publishes Her Seventh Novel
Gauthier Publications has announced the publication of The Cadence of Gypsies, the latest novel written by author and
literary agent Barbara Casey.
In the story, Carolina Lovel, a teacher at Wood Rose Orphanage and Academy for
Young Women, takes three of her extremely gifted students to Italy to help her
discover the strange connection between a letter she received on her 18th birthday
and the most mysterious document in the world — the Voynich Manuscript. In an
effort to help their favorite teacher, the FIGs (Females of Intellectual Genius, as the
mischievous girls call themselves) will have to rely on their special intellect and
abilities when their search takes them into the mystical world of gypsy tradition and
magic, more exciting and dangerous than any of them could have imagined.
“Barbara is one of our most gifted authors,” said Elizabeth Gauthier, publisher of
Gauthier Publications. “She has strong characters and a wonderful sense of how to
unfold a story. We are happy to be able to publish her latest book.”
Casey is the author of numerous articles, poems and short stories. Her seven award-
winning novels have received national recognition, including the Independent
Publishers Book Award for her novel, Shyla’s Initiative. Her novel The House of Kane,
released in 2008, was considered for a Pulitzer nomination, and her latest novel, The
Cadence of Gypsies, was reviewed by the Smithsonian for its list of Best Books.
