Product description


'A gem of a short novel ... The fictional voice Price gives to her great-aunt compels and captivates' Belfast Telegraph. (Belfast Telegraph)

'Price's lyrical prose breathes an almost magical life into the narrative' Editor's Choice on World Literature Today.

'I defy anyone to read it and not be moved. It is like nothing I've ever read before' Historical Novel Society.

(Historical Novel Society)

'a peak of modern British writing' Boyd Tonkin, Independent. (Independent)

'A way of life is celebrated with dignity and nostalgia in a story beautifully unfolding towards an evocative revelation' Irish Times. (Irish Times)

'It is the most fascinating and wonderful book' Jan Morris. (Jan Morris)

'spare, beautiful language, at times biblical in its rhythms ... you will be in the state of exaltation that is conferred by the numinous' Literary Review. (Literary Review)

'such a simple and complicated book, beautifully written and recalled with love and a very keen eye' Mavis Nicholson. (Mavis Nicholson)

'Price's unaffected prose, interspersed with hymnic descriptions of Maesglasau, beautifully evokes a lifestyle that, like the Welsh language, is under threat' Sunday Times. (Sunday Times)

'Nature and poetry form important themes in Price's novel and it's testament to the translator that the rhythmic quality of her prose hasn't been lost' Emerald Street. (Emerald Street)

Book Description

A poetic work of fiction on the one hand, an autobiography on the other, The Life of Rebecca Jones is about one family's passage through the twentieth century.
