Ranofer dreams of following in his father's footsteps as a goldsmith, but when he is suddenly orphaned, he struggles under the abusive control of a half-brother.

    Love it!

    I purchased this to see if I wanted to use it for teaching at our co-op. I love it. I will be using it and two other books and study guides. I'm looking forward to our class next year.
