A gritty Welsh saga in the tradition of Meg Hutchinson
It is Cardiff, 1926, and life for Stella Evans is ever more difficult. The town has turned against her through malicious and scandalous lies spread about her reputation. She is struggling to bring up her son Danny alone, ever since her husband Eddie ran off with her brother Griff's wife. Griff is embittered by this betrayal and by his experience of the war, which has left him disabled. Unable to work, Griff becomes more and more unpredictable as his personality warps under the burden of his grief. When Stella loses her job, she cannot imagine how she will support her small household. And then her husband returns, bringing with him a secret for Stella that will change her life and bring her untold misery...
