Like all the novelist’s works, it is set in the slate quarrying areas of Arfon where she was born and grew up.

Although there is unhappiness, poverty, illness and jealousy here, it is a positive novel with friendship, kindness and love much in evidence.The main character is a woman called Lora Ffennig. This is typical of the author’s work. All her novels deal with women’s trials and tribulations. Lora Ffennig has two children and is an efficient, well-organised wife. Suddenly, without any warning, she learns that her husband has run away with another woman. We follow her plight for the first year, coping with one problem after another.By the end of the year, Lora Ffennig feels that she was asleep before the nightmare of losing her husband, but that she is now fully awake.

She has learned that all may not always be as they appear. She now knows who her friends are, but people change, nothing is permanent. She alone can take responsibility for her own and her children’s lives.
