Clawr | Cover of The Seasoning

The Seasoning by Manon Steffan Ros

On my eightieth birthday, Jonathan gave me a notebook. Hard-backed with brown and pale yellow marbling on the cover, like chocolate in cream.

'I want you to write something for me,' said Jonathan, his dark eyes locking onto mine. 'I want you to write your story, Mam.'

Not until everyone's tale is told does Peggy's story unfold...
as thick, dark and sticky as treacle.

"(A) feast of a novel... successfully captures life's profundity and pain... involving its readers closely in the lives of its believable and memorable characters"

Waterstones Wales Book of the Month July 2015

Clawr | Cover of Betsy Cadwaladyr: A Balaclava Nurse

Betsy Cadwaladyr: A Balaclava Nurse by Jane Williams (Ysgafell)

An Autobiography of Elizabeth Davis

Elizabeth Davis – known in Wales as Betsy Cadwaladyr – was a ladies' maid from Meirionnydd who travelled the world and gained fame as a nurse during the Crimean War. She was a dynamic character who broke free of the restrictions placed on women in Victorian times to lead a life of adventure. Journeying to many exotic parts of the globe, she came into contact with international events in the horrors of the field hospital at Balaclava, where she served under Florence Nightingale.

Betsy's story is a unique record – the authentic voice of an early nineteenth century Welsh working woman recalling the events and experiences of an action-packed life.

First published by Honno in January 2015

Honno is a publisher well worth following. It concentrates on the work of women of Welsh descent or connection, a sort of Celtic Virago, and is developing a very impressive modern fiction list. Writers in Oxford Newsletter

I think there might be a bit of a fight the next time that we get something from Honno and I'd certainly like to thank them for sending this book to the Bookbag
