The Road to Peace
James Clifford-Harris, a disabled veteran of the Great War in his mid-thirties, leads a lonely and miserable existence. Plagued by recurring nightmares and lumbered with selfish family members who are ill-equipped to deal with his needs, his attempt to escape his surroundings is made possible following an encounter with travelling Gypsies, Challenor and his daughter Mary. Learning the details of their tragic past and gaining their trust allows James a clearer perspective of his own problems as he accompanies them on the road, all the while embracing the Gypsy way of life, so different to his own. Their kindness and compassion ultimately help restore his faith in human nature and give him hope for the future.
A heart-warming tale which challenges some of the common misconceptions surrounding the Gypsy lifestyle and attitudes.
