She hides her identity while continuing to search for her lost love. The story takes place in Czechoslovakia, Germany, France, and Israel. It is a story of passionate love, revenge, uncompromised loyalty and the everlasting spirit of Man. “This historical novel took me on a journey the like of which I never experienced. Reading it, I participated in passion, love, jealousy, trust, and distrust spanning two continents and two wars. It will leave you breathless.” B.G “…we know almost nothing about the Romani people during that era. This multi-genre book brings a different perspective of this era.” B.B “Wonderfully written by a most talented author.” C.W “Aside from the stunning flow, changes in pace and scenery, it is a study in the full spectrum of humanity. It takes one back and forth from unbounded love just to descend to the acts of the most vicious animals wearing a human façade. And yes, after much sacrificing it returns to humanity. This is the story of teens growing up from nomadic illiterate beginnings, through tough maturity to become pivotally important individuals in their zones. A one of a kind book.” D.G. “Having experienced reading The Jewish Gypsy I found myself wishing it will never end.” G.B
