The Girl in the Painted Caravan
3 journalers for this copy...
It tells the story of Eva, born into a gypsy family in 1939. "She describes the wonderful characters in her family and vividly captures a way of life that has now sadly almost disappeared."
At the beginning the author reports being able to get in to see the Beatles in 1964 to "read their hands" but after attending to George and Paul she got a phone call from her boyfriend (who had been begging her to marry him for years) saying he had arrived home. She called for a taxi to pick her up immediately and didn't bother to meet the remaining two Beatles, which struck me as very arrogant.
At that point I skimmed the book to the end."
Reserved as a RABCK for another bookcrosser who has it on their wishlist.
To the finder:-
Welcome to bookcrossing -you have found a travelling book. Please make a journal entry now to say where you found the book in case it has been moved. Then, when you have read it, please come back and make a further entry saying whether or not you enjoyed the book and why. It is now yours to do as you like with it, pass it to a friend or just leave it somewhere different for someone else to find and help it with its' journey. Of course if you can't bear to part with it at the moment then keep it, but please let me know that you have found it. If you join bookcrossing, which is free and spam-free, you can follow the book on its' travels as you will get an email each time it changes hands, but if you prefer to remain anonymous, that's fine too. Please also say what you intend to do with the book next. Thanks for coming onto the site to let me know you have found the book.
I already have books travelling in many countries around the world-a list can be found on my bookcrossing profile.
When re-releasing this book please be aware that airports are not a good place to leave books unless they have a specific book exchange shelf or area, due to security problems, so they may well just be disposed of. Also charity shops may well discard books that have been labelled in any way and they mostly chose only the books in the very best condition
to place on their shelves and discard the rest-so another bad release option.
How fortunate to have led such an extraordinary life.
Told on more of a conversational level which carried me away.
I hope that you enjoy this chatty book.
