Publisher Description

Wales has reached the apex of her industrial clamour. But young Tom Mortymer,
son of rich industrialist Iestyn Mortymer, has turned his back on his inheritance,
exchanging the bell-clang and fire of his Upper Forest Tinplate Works in Morriston
for the simplicity and wanderlust of a gypsy existence with his young Romany wife,
Jen Wildflower.

In time they come to settle on Flatholm Island where they become a refuge for the
animals. Self-sufficiency is their ultimate goal; the substantial income from tinplate
is ignored.

But their simple idyll does not last. They are aware of a strange malevolence towards
them.

One frightening incident follows another until it is clear to tom and Jen that they will
have to abandon their home and return to Cefn-Ydfa, their mansion in Maesteg. Their
decision coincides with the arrival in Cardiff of Jethro Mortymer, Tom's uncle - whom
he had long believed dead. Would Jethro be able to shed any light on Tom and Jen's
continuing nightmare?
