5.0 out of 5 stars A story that comes full circle
Reviewed in the United States on June 1, 2020
This work of Fiction is definitely hard to believe that it isn’t a real fable or even a tale of an actual person’s life. The author was very descriptive and detailed with the scenery and setting the stage for the story. There are a few pictures in this book and it adds on to help with the visual imagery. I love that the reader is taken on a journey through Grinza’s life in the early 1900’s. I love the factual information regarding the Great Depression and even World War I. It’s hard not to fall in love with these characters; aside from Noah, he’s easy to dislike. Even though this work is fiction, I believe the author does a nice job adding in some actual Gypsy culture. I would highly recommend this book for upper elementary students through adulthood. The reading pace is fast and the author keeps the reader engaged throughout.
