Small Paperback


Pontypridd 1930 - At eighteen Edyth is the 'plain, intelligent' one of Harry and Sali Evans's five daughters. Until a chance meeting with handsome curate Peter Slater throws her life into turmoil. Head over heels in love, she sacrifices her own ambitions of a college education and career, and defies her parents' opposition so she can help Peter realise his dream of running his own parish. The church sends Peter to Butetown, a multi-racial dockland area of Cardiff, commonly known as Tiger Bay. There Edyth and Peter encounter rich cultures from all corners of the world that flourish even in the depression ridden conditions of desperate poverty. It is a society where creed, language and the colour of a family's skin doesn't matter - as long as the borders that separate Tiger Bay from the city aren't crossed. And there Edyth discovers exactly why her parents were so opposed to her marriage. Peter has a dark secret that has not only blighted his life but also hers. A secret that threatens to destroy her love and, ultimately their marriage. In Tiger Bay she finds out - too late - the difference between true love and infatuation. She experiences the heartbreak that stems from being unable to acknowledge the one man she has come to recognise as the great love of her life.
