This debut novel by a 62-year-old Welsh novelist tells a story of dark family secrets unraveled by the shrewd insight of 12-year-old Gwenni, a child with an irrepressible spirit living in a Welsh village that is reluctantly entering the modern age.
From the Publisher:
Twelve-year-old Gwenni Morgan tries to escape her life and the family secrets she must bear through her dreams.
Annotation:
A twelve-year-old girl named Gwenni Morgan escapes the dreary torment of her daily life in a Welsh village through her nightly dreams, in which she soars through the sky and tunes into the harmonies of the world, which are normally hidden beneath the noise of humanity. Because of her relentless imagination, Gwenni is alienated among the people of the village, including her own family, who continually try to disrupt her penchant for phenomenal fantasies with tedious domestic tasks. The only person who encourages Gwenni is her teacher Elin, so when Elin's husband disappears, Gwenni is determined to use her special powers of perception to find out what happened to him. Unfortunately, what she discovers are secrets about her own family which threaten to end whatever semblance of stability she has left in her life.

Praise

"Strachan presents a convincing portrait of a curious (in both senses) youngster on the threshold of that universal adventure in a bygone place less toylike than it seems, which is also being propelled willy-nilly into its own future." - Amanda Heller 07/12/2009
