My Name is Rose by Sally Grindley
Bloomsbury Publishing ISBN 9781408814024
Rose is a Romani gypsy who lives a happy life in the security of her loving family - until one day her whole life is turned upside-down. She finds herself in a completely new world where, very much against her wishes, she has to conform to the lifestyle of a family who could never replace her own. Will Rose be able, through the power of music and her own determination, to re-discover some of her former life? This is a wonderfully written book with an amazing portrayal of its main character - a real page-turner.
