For historical fiction, check out The Swedish Gypsy, set in Stockholm at the turn of the 20th century. It's a tale of romance, trial, political turmoil and death. Extensively researched it's an engrossing portrayal of Gypsy culture.

One is a link to 'Partners', circa 1866, western Canada ending in Barkerville.
