Born in 1979, Roxy Freeman grew up travelling around Ireland and England in a traditional horse-drawn wagon with her mother and father and five siblings. Life was harsh but it was a childhood of freedom spent in harmony with nature. Roxy didn't know her times-tables but she could milk a goat, ride a horse and cook dinner for the whole family on an open fire before she was ten.
But when the family came to England, they faced prejudice and hostility and Roxy started receiving the unwelcome attentions of a family friend - which she endured in secret for years. Despite all of the difficulties she faced, she developed a passion for music and her dancing skills took her around the world. This beautifully written story is a frank portrait of an extraordinary life. Download and start listening now!
