Gypsy Bride
By

Rating
Like all young girls, Sam Skye Lee had often dreamed about her wedding day. But even she never imagined that her dress would be bright pink with flashing fibre optic lights and weigh a staggering 20 stone. And, she certainly didn't count on her marital home being a caravan either. For Sam, her wedding wasn't just a special day, it was the start of a whole new special way of life. The gypsy way. It's rare for a 'gorger', or non-traveller, to be accepted by the gypsy community. It goes against everything they believe in- keeping their sacred traditions and history alive but behind closed camp gates. So when Sam started dating a gypsy, Pat, they instantly became a modern day Romeo and Juliet, fighting for a forbidden love. Gypsy Bride is the heartwarming true story of how one ordinary girl finds herself discovering an extraordinary world. A place where 'grabbing' is a sign a boy fancies you, six-year-olds get spray tans, and christenings, weddings and funerals are jaw-droppingly flamboyant. Tender, shocking, funny and sad, this love story is much more than boy meets girl. It's about a girl who falls in love with a whole race of people and their truly wonderful ways.
