This is a paperback and I can't remember where I got it from.
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."

REVIEW:-"I was looking forward to reading this book but I was disappointed by the way in which it was written. The author reported that many Romany children rarely went to school and I'm afraid this showed in her writing. She seemed to have an interesting story to tell but it was very disjointed and not very well expressed I thought.
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.

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.

Although it is not particularly well written on a grammatical level, I still found this book very compelling.
How fortunate to have led such an extraordinary life.
Told on more of a conversational level which carried me away.

Thank you for this book. When I was a child I went to a gypsy christening party with my mum. I decided I wanted to be a gypsy. I loved their way of life. So I look forward to reading this.,
