Kizzy was a diddakoi, a half-gypsy, but the more the children at school tormented her, the more determined she was not to become one of 'them' - gorgios. And as long as she had her Gran, and Joe the old horse, she would be all right. But then Gran died and faithful old Joe was sent to the knackers - and Kizzy to the gorgios. Luckily, in the midst of all this misery and interference, there were some people who loved Kizzy as she was - and with them this lonely little outcast found a true home at last.

    " See review of Peacock Spring for critique. I did find this enormously satisfying in a lot of ways. I was tremendously invested in the characters, and I liked how Kizzy's trauma and recovery were depicted -- reminded me a lot of Goodnight Mr Tom. I would have loved the book and reread it millions of times as a child, but I'm not really sure about this message in the end that being taken in by Nice White People and having them graciously preserve your ~beautiful culture~ is the answer. Sigh ... it just doesn't seem right. "

    " The most interesting thing about this book is that there adults who know that bullying is going on but wait to see if the kids sort it out themselves. This would never happen in a book written today. "

    " I am always fascinated with anything to do with gypsies and would love to have read this as a child. I did enjoy it as a grown up but wished for a fleshing out of certain characters such as the Admiral and his household of men. I'd also loved to have had Miss Brooke's back story. The idea of the old ways and the new ways even within the Romany group themselves was also intriguing. I want to run out and read some grown up books about gypsy life now. "
