An interesting tale of travelling life
on 11 December 2012
This book tells of Jessie's life up to the age of fifteen as part of a travelling family in Scotland. For those of us unfamiliar with the life and community, it does give some interesting insights into the culture and way of life. Although the book is in roughly chronological order, it is a bit disjointed at times, and can be a bit repetitive. I gather that Jessie has a reputation as a story teller, and I do suspect that it might be better to actually listen to her tell some of the stories rather than read them from the flat page; I suspect they would come to life more.
Nevertheless, an interesting book, and I will try the next in the series.
