I really liked this book. I've never acctually read one of Lloyd Alexander's books before. At first it looked kinda boring but once u got into the book it was awesome! The book is about a girl named Rizka she is half-gypsy which she got from her fathers side then she is half city girl from her mom. Rizka dressed pretty diffrent and the towns people wanted to get rid of her, but she didnt want to leave because she was waiting for her father to return to the town (Greater Dunista.)During that she was matchmaking, making cures for people and dealing with Sharpnack. Then the gypsies returned with the news that her father had died she had to chose whether to travel with the gypsies or stay with the people she knows in greater dunista.Was this review helpful?
