Red Rowans and Wild Honey
The sequel to the perennially popular Yellow on the Broom, Red Rowans and Wild Honey follows Betsy's story to the end of the Second World War. She recounts in vivid detail the heady years of her adolescence, her courtship and her mother's struggle to bring up four children in the only way a travelling woman knew: hawking wares, fruit picking, tatty howking—in fact any kind of work that would provide the next meal.

Review: Red Rowans and Wild HoneyUser Review - Alison Smith - Goodreads
Apre-war (1930's) account of life as a traveller/tinker, in Scotland. Fascinating glimpse of a way of life that is all but gone in the 21st century. Shines with a love of the outdoors and freedom to come and go at will. Read full review

Wonderful sequel. I enjoyed her honest observations of WWII life and am sad to know she was not able to finish her memoirs. Read full review
