Overview
-

A novel set in rural Wales explores the tensions that existed within Welsh society in the 1950s. The tensions explored are those between Welsh and English-speaking Wales, between north and south, between those who wanted to preserve their heritage, and those who wanted prosperity at any cost, between the generation who had experienced the war and the young people who see Wales within a wider European and world context. "Following a family through [Wales'] growing pains and economical/political shifts, Thomas offers a unique look at nationalism."--World Literature Today
