Journal Entry 1 by TheHappyHippy from Lanark, Scotland United Kingdom on Friday, September 15, 2023
Born into a Romany gypsy family in 1939, Eva's childhood seemed to her to be idyllic in every way. She would travel the country with her family in their painted caravan and spend evenings by the fire as they sang and told stories of their past. She didn't go to school or visit the doctor when she was unwell. Instead her family would gather wild herbs to make remedies, hunt game and rabbits for food and while the men tended to horses to make a living, the young girls would read palms. But in the post-war era, Eva's perfect world would be turned upside down....

A true life account of growing up as a Travelling family with beautiful photos included, it really makes this an evocative book to read.

Left in the book collection in the camp ground of Kealkill. A beautiful place to stay the night over looking the castle and river.
