Penelope lives with her husband on their farm in Whangarei, New Zealand. She has five adult children and eight grand-children. She loves riding her Clydesdale/Appaloosa horse and driving him in her wagon. Other interests are sailing, gardening, milking her house cow and helping her husband in their family business making cast-iron woodstoves.
A warm-hearted early chapter book. Romy was a gypsy boy, eight years old with bright eyes that missed very little. His home was a brightly painted gypsy caravan faithfully pulled by Seth, their old carthorse. Romy was happy, but for one thing...he longed to have his own puppy.
Follow Romy's joy and tears as the adventures unfold. Great family reading.
Full of laughs and dramas, this book is hard to put down! For children of all ages and also the parents who read it aloud, Where Lions Roar at Night is compulsive reading!! Readers will finish this book feeling inspired to take the opportunites that present themselves to make their own lives as exciting and fulfilling as the Boom family's.
