More gypsy tales from the SUNDAY TIMES bestselling author…

Rosemary Penfold’s A FIELD FULL OF BUTTERFLIES was a beautiful and evocative memoir of her life growing up in the fields of the English countryside. A moving testament to a forgotten world and a rapidly disappearing and often misunderstood people, Rosemary won the hearts of the nation with her story.

In this, her second book, Rosemary returns to the idyllic countryside to continue her compelling story. Written in the same elegant narrative that has made Rosemary a much loved and admired storyteller, she paints a vivid and touching portrait of a way of life that no longer exists. It is a heartwarming tale of a fast-changing world, which captures the hopes and struggles, loves and losses, traditions and prejudices of a Romany community.


With her first book a Sunday Times bestseller and as a finalist in The Peoples Author competition on the Alan Titchmarsh Show, the author excels herself yet again with this non fiction story of everyday life in a Romany Gypsy family.
Her innate warmth and vibrancy shine through. Often poignant and always charming, it offers a glimpse into a lost, lamented, world.
