Set in the context of the Gypsies’ long and rich history, this autobiography secures the memories of the old ways of Gypsy life and culture at the dawn of the 21st century. Full of the author’s vivid recollections, these pages recount her experiences growing up as a Gypsy in rural England. At the heart of her story is her “gorgie mush,” Terry, whom she married despite her family’s strong disapproval that he wasn’t a Gypsy. Together they embraced one another’s ways of life, bringing up their children to love the best of both worlds. This tale of one family’s unique way of life takes readers on a journey that constantly travels between various places and cultures.
