Once again, various families intertwined in a Welsh mining village, the saga is now progressing through the 1930's and towards World War II. Looking forward to the next in the series.

A very graphic portrayal of life in Poland in the sixties, I felt that I was on the journey with Helena and Ned.

Such Sweet Sorrow is the fifth book in the Hearts of Gold series (and like the other books in the series it could easily be enjoyed on its own).
It is set in 1939, and vividly describes life in wartime Pontypridd. The characters are colourful and genuine (many will seem like old friends if you have been reading the series), and you quickly become engrossed in their stories.
Many of the young men in Pontypridd volunteer for the Welsh Guards, and leave for France - including William and Eddie Powell and the Ronconi boys.
Their loved ones are left to cope with their worries, and some of the young women have to take on additional responsibilities - such as the Ronconi girls, who have to take over running the family's cafés and restaurant.
A couple of new characters are introduced, as several `conchies' (conscientious objectors) arrive in Pontypridd, conscripted to work in the coal mines.
Tensions build in the community and as war fever sets in the persecution of `enemy aliens' begins, and soon many of the Italians living in Pontypridd face internment.
Such Sweet Sorrow is well researched and very moving. The stories of the characters are gripping - and there is a balance of highs and lows. As well as the tragedies, injustices and sorrows of war; there are stories of deep friendship, romance, and the ability of people and communities to find the strength needed to both cope with, and overcome, great adversities.
