Cold Enough to Freeze Cows
£8.99 BUY THIS BOOK
Iestyn and Menna have known each other since school, but the path of true love is rarely a smooth oneÂ… Particularly when it's a rough farm track obstructed by a raging torrent. It takes a series of unusual events in and around the small mid-Wales town of Dros-y-Bryn to make them realise what they've been missingÂ…
Johnny 'Sandwich' Brechan is a ladies man par excellence Â– flitting from one illicit dalliance to another, nary a female safe from his attentions. Until that is, one lonely night, a voice in the distance calling for help turns him from flirt to family man in a matter of hours.
Esther is struggling to love her husband and daughter, whose selfishness knows no bounds Â– despite her own physical frailty. Her venom needs an outlet where it can do no lasting harm and thanks to a recent foray into the world of computing she might just have found a way to vent her spleen and do some good in the world.
Fate has a lot to answer for Â– and spares no-one's blushes in this wickedly humorous look at the frailities of man - and womanÂ…
