Multi-genre, multi-volume author, Maggie Plummer introduces us to her wonderful story about living like a hippie in the 70s, “Bell-Bottom Gypsy: A Jessie Morgan Novel”:
A wild 1970s ride – an adventurous coming of age journey along America’s back roads.
At twenty, Jessie Morgan is fed up with just about everything. It’s September 1971 -- time to drop out, tune in, and turn on. She leaves college and Detroit in the rearview mirror, hitting the road in her 1965 yellow Volkswagen convertible. Wandering byways from Kentucky to Key West to Montana, Jessie is out to experience everything.
She didn't count on meeting a man like Twisty.
WARNING: BELL-BOTTOM GYPSY is New Adult Fiction recommended for mature readers due to 1970s-era sex, drugs, and cussing.
This story is a lot of fun. I really enjoyed it. I graduated from high school in 1971. Growing up on a small farm in a small town, I didn’t do anything wild. I moved to San Francisco shortly after. I met a lot of hippies and other counterculture types. This story rings with a great deal of truth on many levels. Many young people were abandoning the traditions of their families in various ways and were looking for something to anchor their life to.
The scene-setting is marvelous, I could see everything in my mind, the dialogue was quite good also. Action left nothing to be desired. The writing is excellent! This book gives a great snapshot of the journey, one young woman travels, in an interesting period of American history.
I award a score of 4.9 stars to “Bell-Bottom Gypsy”, the score would have been higher except for a couple of spelling errors I tripped over. I am happy to report those pesky errors have been fixed, your reading pleasure will be improved.
