Inspired by the lost voices of the Romany Holocaust this heartbreaking and tender vel will appeal to readers who loved Sophie's Choice, Schindler's Ark and The Book Thief.Austria, 1944. Jakob, a gypsy boy - half Roma, half Yenish - runs, as he has been told to do. With shoes of sack cloth, still bloodstained with ather's blood, a stone clutched in one hand, a small wooden box in the other. He runs blindly, full of fear, empty of hope. For hope lies behind him in a green field with a tree that stands shaped like a Y. He kws how to read the land, the sky. When to seek shelter, when t. He has grown up directing himself with the wind and the shadows. They are familiar to him. It is the loneliness that is t. He has never, until this time, been so alone.'Don't be afraid, Jakob,' his father has told him, his voice weak and wavering. 'See the colours, my boy,' he has whispered. So he does. Rusted ochre from a mossy bough. Steely white from the sap of the youngest tree. On and on, Jakob runs.Spanning from one world war to ather, taking us across England, Switzerland and Austria, Jakob's Colours is about the painful legacies passed down from one generation to ather, finding hope where there is hope and colour where there is colour.
