It's an old cliche but - I could not put this book down
A beautiful story quite genuine, bursting with captivating anecdotes carrying the reader through a little girl's journey of life. Wonderful biography. Quite enchanting
A memorable, heart felt and no-nonsence memoir.
I loved this book ! I have read several Biography's with Romany roots and this one was heart felt memories and a glimpse into true Ramany ways. I particularly enjoyed the close family ties and the love that radiated from the grandparents and all the extended family members, it also showed how hard the life can be and not the romantic notion that some non romany's think that the life can entail. I could almost taste the stews, feel the sun or the ice cold weather, touch the animals, hear the laughter and tears........... and of course see that field full of butterflies. I would highly reccomend this book, it is suitable for all age groups.
