Set in a picturesque seaside village in West Wales at the time of the 1904 Revival, it is one of the first books in English to set out a distinctively Welsh literary landscape.
An enthralling tale of the complex lives and loves of Gildas, Nancy, Gwenifer and Captain Jack, it will capture the romantic heart of any modern reader.
'This has been the great desire of my life: to shew the poetry and interest of Welsh life to the nation with which we are linked.'-Allen Raine
' Queen of the Rushes is an important novel..It shows its author at the height of her powers as a novelist and demonstrates her skills as a story-teller, as a delineator of character, and as a social historian, bringing to life an entire community.
