Dew on the Grass
Dew On the Grass is the eleventh publication in the Welsh Women’s Classics series
Dew On The Grass, first published in 1934, was Eiluned Lewis' first novel and immediately enjoyed both popular success and critical acclaim. A semi-autobiographical account of childhood in rural Montgomeryshire in the early years of the twentieth century, Lewis' novel focuses on Lucy, nine years old, dreamy, accident -prone and acutely alive to the world around her. Lewis' prose is a delight: sensuous, evocative and nostalgic. Here is a book which distils all the joys and agonies of childhood and seems to speak directly to us all of our own lost selves.
