Children of Rebecca

Vivien A Bailey  All books by Vivien A Bailey

£6.95     Out of print

Set against the turbulent background of the Rebecca Riots and the Chartist uprisings,Children of Rebecca traces Bethan and Siôn's long journey through separation, political turmoil and back-breaking poverty towards love and fulfilment.

From the taverns and cottages of rural Carmarthenshire to the beer-halls and brothels of the notorious China district of Merthyr, it brings the degradation and hope which coloured the lives of the poorest working people in the Wales of the 1830s and 1840s vividly and compassionately to life. It portrays a world where a woman's struggle for equality and respect could be the hardest and most dangerous fight of all.

"The novel rattles on at a cracking pace.....If you're looking for an enjoyable read and want to get a taste for what it must have been like to live through the rebellious 1830s and 40s, then you wouldn't go far wrong with this."- Socialist Review
