When I Came Home

(2012)
A novel by

 
Back from the Far East after years serving in Burma, a World War II veteran returns to his home in Banwen, Dulais Valley, South Wales, to find that the ex-servicemen are being treated as traitors - "Churchill's army" - by the ferociously Communist self-appointed commissars of the local colliery. Told with vivid clarity and directness, this book offers an insider's look into a community during a lifetime. Featuring conversations from 50 and 60 years ago as well as tales of drunken colliers, runaway ponies, births, deaths, and trips to London and Cardiff, it will particularly intrigue those interested in memoirs and nostalgia.
