Full of immense richness and subtle wit, this engaging novel examines the power of ancestral and cultural heritage and the impact such history has upon the present. As an intense young filmmaker, Bethan Mair Nichols seems to have total happiness until an unexpected legacy bearing the weight of family and communal expectations forces her to question her ambition, motives, and her very role in the world. Compassionate and moving, this novel is based on an ancient folktale from medieval Wales.
