Hi! I'm hoping that someone can help me figure out the name of a book that I loved when I was in 4th-5th grade (1994-1995). I am pretty sure that I got it at a Scholastic book fair, in fact.

It is about an orphan girl living in medieval England (maybe? I think it was England) who goes to live at a castle so that she can take care of the lord's daughter. Then something happens to make someone believe that the daughter is a changeling, and I believe that the plague is also involved in some way. The orphan girl ends up becoming a witch and saving the child by painting her blue.

I remember that the cover had an illustration of a teenage girl with long red hair holding the hand of a small blond child while running through some woods.

Thank you!!

I somehow managed to figure it out on my own after weeks of doing all of the recommended search tactics. Lost Magic by Berthe Amoss. Whoo!
