A touching story of Welsh village life.
Cockney born Nelly Luke is an essential part of the community. Yet not even Nelly, with her shrewd eye, can predict the surprises in store for her family and friends.
A new year brings new faces: Maurice Davies is back from the army, and Sheila Powell, a shop-girl, is eager to help him make up for lost time. But for some there’s no escaping the past, and widow Prue Beynon finds herself confronted by a legacy she’d rather forget…
Through the seasons, Nelly watches over the valley with a wry chuckle and an ever-helping hand.
Valley Affairs is a warm-hearted novel packed with nostalgia and glorious period detail.
