This review is from: Gypsy Princess (Paperback)Just finished 'Gypsy Princess' by Violet Cannon. This is a very interesting read. Violet opens up the gypsy world and talks very candidly about hardships, joys, prejudice, becoming a Christian, her disastrous marriage and miscarriages.
She doesn't go to great length discriptively but I'm glad about that, I tend to get bored by overly long discriptive passages and just want to find out about lives.
Violet definitly reveals the gypsy life and the differences between Romanys and Showmen. She is very honest about her own shortcomings too which is very refreshing.
This isn't an exciting read but one that intrigues and makes you want to continue. I'd recommend it.
