Smashwords book reviews by Gaynor Madoc Leonard

  • Gwenna's gift on Dec. 15, 2011

    Eifion Jenkins has written an absorbing tale set in pre-history, in Celtic Britain. As well as being a very readable story, it teaches us something of the history and customs of the time. I really recommend this for young people as both a thoroughly enjoyable read and as an easy and accessible history lesson. For adults, I would also recommend Eifion's book (currently only available in print) If You Fall I Will Catch You.
