G is for Gypsies Stop tHere by Miriam Wakerly
Blurb: (from Goodreads) Will uprooting herself from London to live in the country help Kay escape guilt-ridden memories of her husband’s death? Far from finding a quiet life, she is caught up in an age-old village conflict where passionate opinions on Romany Gypsy Travellers divide the local people.
A young woman, Lena, enters her life, unwittingly putting Kay’s plans on hold as Kay struggles to not only come to terms with her emotional past but to resolve Lena’s problems, those of the village and the Gypsies.

A book I’d not heard of — sounds like an interesting story!
This sounds like an interesting story.
For years, I heard the Roma referred to as “Gypsies” and didn’t think anything about it. I didn’t know until we moved here to Texas that “gypsy” was a derogatory term. Apparently, Roma is the acceptable term and “gypsy” is racist. It was one of the first cultural lessons that we learned here. There have been many others since then.
Have a blessed day!
J here, stopping by from the #atozchallenge – where I am part of Arlee Bird’s A to Z Ambassador Team.
How has the first week of the challenge been for you so far? Are you meeting your goals of posting and hopping to other blogs?
My blog has a giveaway with bonus a to z challenges to encourage people to visit more stops.
Sounds like an interesting book.
Thanks for stopping by, Durba. I have Gypsies Stop tHere on my iPad but I’ve not got round to reading it yet.
I’ve been visiting a few of the a to z challenge blogs, Lenni, but not as many as I would like. I just came back from paying a visit to your blog. 🙂 I’ve met some new people in this first week of the challenge and am looking forward to meeting more as the month unfolds.
Thanks for stopping by and sharing, Suzanne.
You’re welcome, Melanie. I wasn’t finding fault. I just think it is interesting how different areas of the country/world see things differently.
I didn’t think that for a moment, Suzanne. I agree about the differences between cultures and places.
Thanks for dropping by.
