Gladys of Harlech by L.M.Spooner

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
