The Life of Rebecca Jones

Angharad Price
Authors:
Angharad Price

In the early years of the last century, Rebecca is born into a rural community in the Maesglasau valley in Wales; her family have been working the land for a thousand years, but the changes brought about by modernity threaten the survival of her language, and her family's way of life.Rebecca's reflections on the century are delivered withhaunting dignity and a simple intimacy, while her evocation of the changingseasons and a life that is so in tune with its surroundings is rich and poignant. The Life of Rebecca Jones has all the makings of a classic, fixing on a vanishing period of rural history, and the novels final, unexpected revelation remains unforgettable and utterly moving.
