Set in my home town of Pontypridd, this book focuses on characters struggling to maintain relationships under the threat of the oncoming ww2 I laughed, i cried, i finished it in two days!
My favourite character's are the Powell's, a mining family each having to contend with thier own problems; Haydyn the actor, Bethan the nurse, Eddie the boxer, Maud the youngest traniee nurse.
The characters will become like old friends, i have read the entire series from beginning to end now and i still can't get enough.
This woman should be made a dame!!!
Made you laugh, cry and left you wanting more I just couldn't put it down, no sooner had I finished one book I was buying the next, it's very well written so good in fact that you would think the author was writing about her family.
You won't regret reading it or the rest in the series, 5 stars is not enough deserves more.
Don't forget to have the tissues ready.
Collier’s strength lies in her characterisation and descriptions of Pontypridd in the 1930s, when the recession was biting and jobs were at a premium. It was also a period when TB was ravaging the valleys and when Cardiff must have appeared to be a quite amazing metropolis to visitors from the valleys – towards the end of the book, the welsh capital is firmly put in its place by London. The book opens with the return of Maud Powell and her cousin, Diana, from working in Cardiff Infirmary in the hope of becoming nurses. Maud has contracted TB and Diana has brought her back to Pontypridd, although no-one imagines that the local climate and atmosphere will do anything to alleviate her condition.
From these two characters, the author seamlessly introduces the reader to a host of other characters, family members and, in particular, the many members of the Ronconi family who own the local café, currently run with military precision by Giacomo, Ronnie, Ronconi, the owner’s eldest son. Its interior was ‘backed by an enormous mirror that reflected the rear of the huge mock-marble soda fountain, and stone lemon, lime and sarsaparilla cordial jars.Read more ›
