The Barefoot Queen~Book Review




I couldn't wait to delve into this novel when all 656 pages arrived in a mail. It was such a fascinating subject & one that I have never read about before. I have been intrigued by the gypsy culture for awhile & to be able to "live" the history of it was so interesting. It was wonderfully written to make you feel as if you are really there. But with that meant there are some scenes in the book that are very difficult to read, because of the violence against women. With that said, I know that especially in that time period these things were very common, so in my 21st century mindset, I needed to remember that I am reading a historical novel that was not sugar coating these acts.
It was an incredible adventure full of unique characters & places that
I was excited to get to know.
