A novel about the attempted extermination of the Gypsies during WW II told through the story of a family. Between one-quarter and one-half a million people were killed. The novel ends on a somewhat defeated note with the loss of the culture of these people.
Doughty illustrates her ability to tackle a wide variety of topics while maintaining a strong narrative and realistic plot development. The tragedy she explores is apropos for the current climate of ethnic cleansing and right wing nationalism.
8 out of 10. Like any story about Nazi persecution, it was hard to read at times, but it's still a good read. The Roma were one of many groups the Nazi's targeted for elimination that have been overlooked by history.
