Cart and Cwidder (Dalemark #1) - Diana Wynne Jones7.20

Cart and Cwidder relates the fortunes of Clennen and his family, itinerant musicians who travel the villages of Dalemark in their colorful cart. With warring earldoms and spies everywhere, there is little contact between the North and South of the country, and so the musicians often carry news – and sometimes, as now, a passenger. Who is this Kialan? Is there any connection between him and the sudden violence that overtakes them? The family's fate and Kialan's are bound together in terror and flight – and in music, for the songs of Dalemark mean more than they say.
