After All These Years
Our Gypsy journey continues
Author: Maggie Smith-Bendell
“Not only does it contain an important personal history of what life was like on the road but this is combined with a touching love story concerning Maggie's late husband Terry and, additionally, a call to all Gypsies and Travellers to unite and fight for the rights of Gypsies and Travellers. This is Maggie's second volume of autobiography and it is just as good as the first volume, Rabbit Stew. We thoroughly recommend this book to our readers.”
About the book
In her bestselling autobiography, Our Forgotten Years (also published as Rabbit Stew and a Penny or Two), Maggie Smith-Bendell BEM told of her life as a Romani Gypsy.
Her second book is full of more of her vivid memories, this time set in the context of the long history of the Gypsies. Descended from some of the oldest Traveller families in England, Maggie sees traces of the persecution suffered by her people over hundreds of years in the old tales handed down through the generations and in the distrust that is still so commonly shown towards them.
