The outside world is coming to the Welsh valleys…
The small South Wales village of Hen Carw Parc is a haven of rural peace, a gentle backwater where the rhythms of life flow at a time-honoured pace. But times are changing and, although Nelly Luke and the older villagers stick resolutely to tradition, the younger ones have caught tantalising glimpses of a world beyond their quiet valley.

For ambitious Fay Cartwright the lure of a career strains her marriage to home-loving Johnny still further, while Amy, the happy-go-lucky shopkeeper, is saddened when her son is given Army leave but fails to return to his family home.

And there are other, more serious intrusions, not least a spate of robberies whose ruthless perpetrator looks likely to be one of their own. But despite the trauma of change, the life of the village continues, fuelled as ever by the humour, kindness and surprising wisdom of, the incomparable Nelly.

A vivid and warm-hearted portrait of a changing village community, The Changing Valley is the third of Grace Thompson’s Valley sagas. A delightful, charming read, it evokes a lost way of life which many will recall with enduring affection.

    Henrik Karlsson

    "Har precis startat en provperiod hos Storytel och det är det bästa jag någonsin gjort. Att lyssna ger mig full koncentration på boken samtidigt som jag kan pyssla med annat."

    Birgitta Johansson

    "Det bästa som har hänt mig på länge. Dessutom lyssnar jag på böcker som jag nog aldrig hade kommit mig för att läsa annars. Jag lyssnar i bilen, på promenaden eller när jag städar."

    Birgitta Lindh

    "Jag och min man delar familjeabonnemanget och har haft Storytel i 5-6 år. Vi är så nöjda med både appen och Readern. Här finns ett stort bokutbud som passar oss båda!"
