Description

Gypsy is a compelling historical novel of survival from international number one bestselling author Lesley Pearse.

Tragedy sent her on a journey far from home . . .

Fifteen-year-old Beth's life is shattered when she and her brother Sam are orphaned. Believing that only in America can they make a fresh start, brother and sister leave Liverpool and embark on the greatest adventure of their lives.

In New York, Beth's talent with the fiddle earns her the friendship of gamblers, chancers and other rogues. Dodging trouble across America, Beth and her friends head for the Klondike river in search of gold.

How far must Beth go to find happiness? And will her travels lead this gypsy to a place she can ever call home?
