'It's a fascinating story, well told. Morgan writes well and with a great ear for the cadences of Welsh, which enlivens her dialogue. The history is riveting . . . strongly recommended." "Historical Novel Society"" "Elizabeth Morgan has unveiled a hidden epic of Welsh nationalism and human survival that in a world once more filled with desperate people crossing the world in search of a safe haven has more than a passing topical relevance." Nigel Jones, "Daily Mail""
