About Elin

Elin Pritchard, ex-firebrand, ex-Welsh Nationalist, is back home for her brother's funeral. Returning brings all sorts of emotions to the fore, memories good and bad, her own and those of the community she left behind. The neat, tidy, be-suited redhead in the second pew passes almost unrecognised at first, so different is the woman from the girl. Also present is another redhead, a young man, eerily like the deceased in looks and bearing – but who is he, whose secrets does he carry in every fibre of his being…?

As each of the mourners loses themselves in thoughts of Gareth Pritchard and his family, a picture begins to emerge of the girl Elin used to be and the woman she is now, and of the future she might now be brave enough to face, even without the support of her beloved big brother.

A haunting novel of love and loss.
