Made A Gypsy Smile is a kindle ebook now available in Amazon.
Thomas Leonard Shaw, the author, sat down and began a dreamy recall of his childhood.He ran onto the village green and joined the other children in play.
From the child that lives within us all his story unfolded from the events of his village life, his explorations along a river and into the wooded hills.
The story picks up in pace and excitement with each new character, the military officers, the errant cleric, the gypsies, the school teacher and the famous.
There is fishing which is funny and horse racing which is exhilarating and the village bobby after a few crooks.
A keen eye for nature controls the pen which gives authenticity to each page. The tale is set over eighty years ago, in a period which has not been covered by a lot of writing.
If you wished to bring some joy to the world, read this book out loud to an elderly relative whose vision is fading. Then you will see just how great this book is.
My husband, Tom Shaw, likes to write books but he hates to promote. He doesn’t mind if his wife does it.
The next book we have asked them to show is called MADE A GYPSY SMILE. This is an Amazon Kindle book already attracting some attention and some handsome reviews.
The first readers like the widely different characters, country boys, gypsies, military officers, errant clergy and the like, all in a period, the 1930’s, about which little has been written. The scene is English countryside and the read is exciting, interesting, funny and a touch of pathos.
We live on an island in the Philippines, have one college boy son, and are a happy old couple. I am sitting in our church to which you all welcome!
