Product description


"A gripping tale of Wales and Italy, modern and ancient, love and revenge. A smart and charming must-read." Alex Lloyd, Wales News


While unconscious following an accident, high-flying businessman Mac has a vision in which he meets a girl and falls in love. Later he learns of an ancient Celtic legend in which his real life ancestor had the same experience, before rising to greatness. He becomes convinced that the legend is being repeated, but his compulsion turns his life - and all around him - upside down. He will stop at nothing to achieve his dreams. Caught in his obsession are young student Elen and her would-be suitor Rhys, Mac's beautiful wife Kata and his long suffering secretary, Carla. But there are darker forces at work and all is not as it appears to be...Lust, ambition and romance combine with the down-to-earth and sometimes comic life of the South Wales valleys as the present mirrors the past.
