In The Devil’s Children Nicky and the Sikh group have decided to make camp at an abandoned farm. Nicky is more than a little disturbed by the amount of farm machinery in one of the barns but with the abundance of supplies it is an almost perfect place for the Sikhs to take refuge.
The group decide to stay put and start a blacksmiths in a bid to trade with the local village. Nicky agrees to act as a go-between with the Sikh’s and the villagers. The biggest problem for Nicky is that the path to the village means she has to cross under an electrical pylon which sends off no small amount of panic in her.
Initially the villagers are very unsure about the band they call “The Devil’s Children” but the fact that they have excellent blacksmithing skills means they have little choice. Even if village leader Mr Barnard is very anti the Sikhs.
but first go and tidy yourself, you look like a beggar child not a businesswoman.
