The Soldier and the Gentlewoman
20th Welsh Women's Classic
It is the end of the First World War and men are returning home. Gwenllian Einon-Thomas cannot share in the feeling of joy at their return, however. She has more than proven her mettle in the management of her country estate whilst her brothers fought in the war - and peace now spells the end of independence and the loss of her ancestral home. Her young cousin, Dick, a young enfeebled soldier is looking forward to a tranquil life at the estate; instead he finds himself drawn into an even deadlier battle. First published in 1932, this is a dark but memorable tale.
