The End of the Yellow House

by Alan Bilton

Central Russia, 1919, a sanatorium cut off by the chaos of the Russian civil war. The murder of the chief doctor sets in motion a nightmarish series of events involving mysterious experiments, the secret police, the Tsar's double, an enigmatic 'visitor', giant corpses, possessed cats, sorcery, and the overwhelming madness of war, in this fantastical and wildly exuberant novel.

Some Sort of Twilight by Carolyn Lewis

These twelve stories are of people unsure of their place in the world – Cassie who discovers she can fly and has no-one to tell, Christine who's been in her friend's shadow for a long time, Bernard who loses his job through no fault of his own and Hannah who knows her father is waiting for her to sort his life out. The stories combine pathos, humour and wisdom to explore how the ordinary can be strange, heart-breaking or comic, illuminating the inner lives of people who feel in some way they’re on the edge of their own lives.

The Story of Annie-May

by Alana Beth Davies

Book 1: The Making of Annie-May

II’s the 1980s in south Wales, with all its turbulence - unemployment, hardship, and a bitter miners’ strike - and Anya finds herself taking on a teaching job in the unfamiliar world of further education. She tries to balance the role of dutiful wife and mother with her idea of the liberated woman she aspires to be. She finds ways to fight the sexual harassment she encounters, and she helps the people in her local community in any way she can. In speaking up for them, she finds her own voice. But Anya embarks on a passionate love affair, one that has unforeseen and sometimes tragic consequences

 

Book 2: Secrets to be Told

Some questions are answered, some truths revealed, in this prequel/sequel to The Making of Annie-May. It is a love story, a romance, a family saga, a social commentary.
Following Anya’s move from teaching in a south Wales valley to politics at the highest level, this book takes us forward into the new world she has entered, where she finds some surprising links with her home. It also takes us back as far as the 1930s, to her father’s youth and the beginning of a family secret that has remained hidden for so many years. Other secrets are revealed too, and some lives are not always what they seem.

This is a love story, a family saga, a social and political commentary on life in 20th century Wales, as seen through the eyes of one woman and her family, as we follow her journey from a pliable and naïve young girl to a confident and self-assured woman.
