Product Description

Review

A thoroughly enjoyable and lifelike novel, it can't fail to appeal to the romantic in everyone. The compassion of the characters and the inetnsity of feeling makes it impossible to put down. Catrin Collier has wonderfully managed to cover all areas of life in the compelling novel, a splendid follow-up to the best-selling Hearts of Gold.

Book Description

The second compelling novel in Catrin Collier's bestselling HEARTS OF GOLD series.

Format: Paperback
One Blue Moon is the second in a series of eight books following the fortunes of a small community in Pontypridd in Wales. They are set from before the second world war to just after it. Each book focuses on the same characters but from a a slightly different aspect although still entwining the story around all the characters. Through the books you follow the characters while they grow and suffer the hardships and the ups and downs of life in the mining town. Throughout the story the author makes the reader laugh and cry and feel a number of differing emotions. The series can be read individually but I think that they are well worth reading from start to finish. I read all eight books over a period of two months and found that each one was even more enthralling than the last. Now I've finished the series I feel totally lost as the books are so well written that the characters seemed so real I feel that I've lost my friends. The books were passed to me by my mother and she felt exactly the same about them. The series is Hearts of Gold, One Blue Moon, A Silver Lining, All That Glitters, Such Sweet Sorrow, Past Remembering, Broken Rainbows and finally Spoils of War.

the first Catrin Collier book i ever read, and i've been hooked ever since.
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!!!

If you are a fan of historical/family sagas, then this is a must. This is the second in the series of 8 books, and as the family circle expands and intertwines, you can't fail to be drawn into the relationships, hopes and dreams, and successes and disappointments of the various family members. In addition to this, the level of historical detail is fantastic, and all credit to the author for this.

Another good story in the series. Just as good as the others, it continues the story of the lives of the people in a Welsh village. If you like family sagas this series is highly recommended. They are well written and entertaining and not always too predictable. It is also an interesting insight into the politics and social conventions of the thirties.

This kind of storyline is not normally something I go for, truth be told the first book in this series was free, but let me tell you how fascinating it is, the insight on how people had to live in the 40`s, it was almost like you were there.
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.

I confess that I had not heard of the author before and I partly bought this book because of its setting, Pontypridd in the 1930s, where and when my mother was growing up. The dedication is to ‘all those who have fought illnesses associated with the Welsh valleys armed with nothing more than patience, courage and the indomitable Welsh sense of humour.’ The book, published in 1993, is the second in the author’s eight book ‘Hearts of Gold’ series’, set in Pontypridd between 1930-1950

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.

This is the second in a series of books following the fortunes of a small community in Pontypridd in Wales. They are set from before the second world war to just after it. If you have read the first in this series you won't be disappointed with this one. It is just as much a page turner as the first. Definitely to be recommended.
