Tracing lives, loves, and aspirations of English Gypsies arriving in mid-nineteenth century America, CARAVAN OF DREAMS is a rare insiders view of a mysterious culture, a love story, an uneasy truce with wealth garnered from the Civil War, a mothers excruciating bereavement, and the emotional cost of loss and injury. Searching for freedom to roam, Victorias English Gypsy family comes to America and establishes themselves as horse traders. Traveling the hills of North Carolina, they encounter Prince Williams, a dashing Gypsy with a charming moustache. Seventeen-year old Victoria, her budding skill as a healer and visionary added to her familys prominence, has despaired of finding a suitable husband at this late age. To her delight, a match is made, and a traditional wedding unites the two. Thus Prince and Victoria begin their life, ranging the Eastern coast from Canada to Georgia, raising nine children, and developing a solid reputation as preeminent horse dealers. Even Victoria is unable to foresee the coming grief, pain, and loss that will shape their familys future. Based on historical records, CARAVAN OF DREAMS is an immigrants story, an English Gypsy tale, Victorias saga, or the life of any wife and mother. And all of these.
