Gypsies Stop tHere by Miriam Wakerly

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?

Gypsies Stop tHere is just a delightful story about different people’s attitudes. The issues covered in this storyline very much still happen a lot in today’s society, and these issues are covered in a sensitive and thoughtful way, that show both points of view, and make this book a very interesting read. Author Miriam Wakerly has really done her research and presents the story really well. I really enjoyed this beautiful story, and I will now go straight on and read Miriam next book No Gypsies Served.

Miriam Wakerly has had short stories and articles published in magazines. Gypsies Stop tHere is her first novel and was launched the day after she retired in 2008; No Gypsies Served followed two years later. In 2012 she published Shades of Appley Green the first of a new series of Appley Green village novels.
