This book is a follow up to ‘Black Diamonds‘ and is the second in the ‘Seasons of Change’ series of historical romance novels, primarily set in Wales. I enjoyed researching for this book so much. The historical settings are real but the characters and story are fictional. The action takes place in both Merthyr and London.
This is the story of Kathleen O’Hara, a young Irish woman who marries a Welsh man named, Dafydd Jenkin. Kathleen yearns to sing on the stage but her headstrong husband opposes her, he’s just landed a job as a policeman with the Glamorgan Constabulary and his career means everything to him.
However, after singing locally at the Temperance Hall, Merthyr Tydfil, the bright lights of London beckon Kathleen. People are saying she has the ‘Voice of an Angel’, she now has the chance to better herself after a surprise visit from a London Agent.
Will Kathleen give up the love of her life to seek a love anew on the London stage? Or will she stay put and carry on with everyday life in Merthyr Tydfil to please her husband?
