Talking with author Kristin Alexandre + Giveaway
But those are the old days. We are still gypsies and not considered good enough for upper class people in Oakwood. They think of us a a novelty and watch us leave with our caravans for Tennessee. But their sons and daughters stay far away.
That’s the reality of it. That’s why I want to be someone else by the name of Neci Star.

About the Book:
When you read “Gem City Gypsy” you must conceptualize a whole world.
The Wright Brothers.
Industrialization leading to WWI.
So many vivid elements. The story is about a gypsy girl who must leap over bodies to survive the sinking Lusitania and escape murderous Germans who kill her mentor in Ireland. She later returns to her hometown, recreated as a wealthy woman trying to meld into the upper class. Neci Star captures our imagination and heart as she claws her way out of one class and into the abyss of another.
