Be the first to review this product

Rosemary Penfolds beautiful and evocative memoir of her life growing up in the fields of the English countryside is a moving testament to a forgotten world and a rapidly disappearing and often misunderstood people. Born in 1938 in a traditional Gypsy wagon and surrounded by the love of her parents and extended family in a small but close knit community, Rosemary paints a vivid and touching portrait of a way of life that no longer exits. From her early memories of her father bringing home oranges during the war to the simple beauty of a field full of butterflies on a hot summers day, Rosemarys stunningly elegant narrative captures the love and losses, hopes and struggles, and traditions and prejudices that bound her to her family, and helped her adapt to a fast changing world.
