Miriam, Daniel and Me
When he smiled it really did feel as if the chilly Caernarfonshire wind had stopped for a few seconds and as if the place had suddenly got warmer.
When Miriam fell in love with Padraig life seemed simple. But soon she discovered that love is a treacherous business. Everything changed when she met Daniel. She was taken down an unexpected path which would dictate and dominate the rest of her life.
Spanning three generations of a North Wales family in a Welsh-speaking community, Miriam, Daniel and Me is an absorbing and compelling story of family discord, political turmoil, poetry, jealousy…and football.
"...a confidently crafted novel about time, change and enduring love...and the seemingly random decisions that are made and borne by the generations who follow..." – Ed Thomas
Watch the full launch of Miriam, Daniel and Me on our Youtube channel now! Euron talks to Jon Gower about the inspiration behind the novel and it's characters, and Rakie Ayola reads excerpts from the book:
This is a vast book, ‘of love and death and loss, of fear and shame and regret.’ Set in the microcosm of North Welsh village life mid last century, the deft writing draws you into a world that feels generations away and yet timeless. I read this book in three sittings - a sure sign of how compelling the characters are and how I wanted to know what impact their decisions have on the landscape of their lives. A beautiful book of love, poetry and welsh politics.
