Description
Born into a Romany gypsy family in 1939, astrologer Eva Petulengro enjoyed an idyllic childhood. She describes traveling the country with her family in a painted caravan and spending evenings by the fire as they told stories and sang of their past. She didn't go to school—instead she learned fortune-telling from the women in their extended family, while the men hunted game and tended horses for a living, and if Petulengro was unwell her family would gather wild herbs to make traditional remedies. But Petulengro's perfect world was turned upside down in postwar Britain, as the countryside became increasingly hostile to such travelers.

"Eva's reminiscences of her traveling childhood are nostalgic, affectionate and distinctly soft-focus.... It is a delightful story and she tells it with great charm."—Lancashire Evening Post
