Gypsies Stop tHere and No Gypsies are both books written by Miriam Wakerly.

Whilst they do following on from each other they can be read as a stand alone, my recommendation would be that you read them both as the stories flow together. Because of this I am reviewing them together!

Miriam had touched upon a subject that some could find controversal with a very skilled hand and care. It is extremely clear that she has conducted a large amount of research on the subject matter and often includes the

After a family tragedy, Kay Brackenbridge moves from London to live in the country, in a village called Appley Green. Kay soon discovers all is not peaceful and quiet, in this rural setting.

Kay soon finds herself involved in the local dispute involving the community of Romany Gypsy Travellers. Kay helps out a young girl called Lena, and her two small children. Will helping Lena out with her problems not only help Lena, but help Kay come to terms with her emotional past?

This is the second of Ms Wakerly's books I have read ( Shades of Appley Geen is the other) and I found it as enjoyable and refreshing as a cool Pimm's on a summers day. I highly recommend this book for its warmth and also it's honesty.
I have now purchased the third book and I'm about to start it so watch this space!!!!
Have to double check the date I finished this,but read this as a possible book for the class I'll be teaching on the Romani people. A bit preachy at times, but on the whole a good read.

This is a great read with well developed characters giving a good understanding into the lives of gypsies. I thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to reading more from this author.

I live in lovely Surrey, England, within easy reach of London. The area is very much like Appley Green, the setting for my three novels. I have had a varied working life, together with bringing up three children who have long since flown the nest. Now officially 'retired', I have time to enjoy writing, with a broad sweep of life experience behind me - and ahead!
