I'm So Brave

Well, the scarey thing for me today, the first chapter of Hafan Deg is in the link on the left.

The following is just a tiny book-jacket kind of blurb about it, so that you know what to expect.

Karen Miles is a successful London book editor, a single mother in her early fifties. She seems to have it all, good income, beautiful London apartment, regular travel, the occasional man, and adult children she is proud of. Yet she is not happy and her days are becoming more and more deadening. Something is missing from her life, and she sets out to discover what this is. A derelict house in North Wales, an area where she and the children vacationed many years earlier, becomes the catalyst for her transformation.
