Since appearing on the BBC Wales series Coal House, life hasn't been quite the same for Cerdin and Debra Griffiths and their children. Their experiences - living and working under 1927 conditions in a mining village in Blaenavon, became a talking point throughout Wales. In this book you'll meet the whole family and discover how they coped with life in such circumstances. How difficult was it in reality? How did the children adjust to having to use a different language at school? And how has life been for the Griffiths family since leaving the Coal House?
