Description

Young Gwenni Morgan has a gift. She can fly in her sleep. She's also fond of strawberry whip, detective stories, and asking difficult questions. When a neighbour mysteriously vanishes, she resolves to uncover the secret of his disappearance and return him to his children. She truthfully records what she sees and hears: but are her deductions correct? What is the real truth? And what will be the consequences for Gwenni, her family, and her community of finding it out?

Gwenni Morgan is an unforgettable creation, and this portrait of life in a small Welsh town on the brink of change in the 1950s is enthralling, moving, and utterly real. Mari Strachan's debut is a magical novel that will transport you to another time and place.
