Review for Once a Gypsy
Author: Danica Winters
Date of Review: 08/17/16
Reviewed by:

Reviewer Comments: Danica Winters starts her newest series with a bang. This novel tells the story of a woman who lives the Pavee (gypsy) life and learns that she has an extraordinary gift. Her life turns upside down and she must deal with the fallout. Helena O’Driscoll knows that life as a gypsy is a tough one. People automatically assume that they are shifty, lazy and criminals. As she waits for her father to exit prison, she meets a gypsy woman who hints that there may be more to Helena’s life than she knows. Meeting a handsome gorger who makes her feel things, dealing with a mother who drinks too much and trying to make her own way instead of just marrying add to the complications in Helena’s life. Graham Kelly goes to Limerick Prison to meet Helena. He knows that she won’t come work for him unless her father is also there working. He has to figure out a way to make sure that she has the skills that he needs. His life is not what it first appears and is more complicated. There is a lot going on in this book. We have the gypsy culture and all the expectations that exist for the women in that culture. They are expected to marry young and continue the gypsy lifestyle. Helena wants more than that and is looking for an education to help her make her way. We also have the antagonism that gypsies and gorgers feel toward each other and what happens when attraction between the two makes relationships complicated. Add to that the paranormal aspects of Helena’s sight and all the things that are really going on in Graham’s home. I really enjoyed this story and am looking forward to see what life holds for Graham and Helena as the series continues. I liked all the detail about being a gypsy and what life means for people in this culture. I thought the anxiety that Helena feels about her new gift and her attraction to Graham was realistic and helps us understand the life that she leads.
