Read full description of the books Leap the Wild Water:Leap the Wild Water is set in early 19th century rural Wales.
Megan's Mam has died and her childhood sweetheart returned wishing to marry her. She accepts but does not tell him about the affair she had in his absence and the illegitimate child which was stolen away from her by her brother and Mam, to save the family from shame.
Meanwhile, her brother, Morgan, is desperate to make amends. He knows Megan's child is living in squalor and is abused and neglected by the woman he pays to look after her. He yearns to bring the child home but to do so would ruin his sister's new found happiness and reputation.
As Morgan wrestles with his conscience, Megan's past begins to catch up with her and threatens to destroy her life.
Read information about the authorIf you visit Wales, I’m that crazy Welsh woman seen wandering about the Welsh mountains in all weathers with a notebook in hand. The landscape here is little changed from the era in which I like to write and it features in my writing. I began my writing journey with a national prize winning poem, aged 10. It took me a long time to fulfill a lifelong dream and write my first novel, Leap the Wild Water; mainly because I allowed some bizarre life experiences to throw me off course.
The inspirations for my writing come from the real life struggles of rural people, especially women, in the 19th century, and events in my own family’s history. The themes I write about include the pressures which drive people to act against their consciences; what it really means to be free; and how fear and prejudice destroy man's humanity.
If I had to write my own epitaph, it would be; you can't keep a good woman down.
