My Heart on My Sleeve


Editor: Janet Thomas, Cathryn A. Charnell-White

14 stories of love from Wales

A perfect gift for Santes Dwynwen or Valentine's Day!

Loves lost, loves regained and loves that hide themselves away... fourteen stories, new and rediscovered, from the best of Welsh women's writing.

The collection also includes the first translation of The Foolish Maid by Dilys Cadwaladr and the novella Pererinion by the famous Welsh author Jane Ann Jones.

Pererinion is a bittersweet autobiographical novella about a relationship between a young woman and a married man. When her former lover burnt the only copy of the manuscript, Davies rewrote it. It then lay undiscovered in an attic until it was published for the first time by Honno in 2008 in the original Welsh, several decades after the author's death, now available for the first time in English.

Heartbroken and in need of mending or in the first flush of passion, there's something here for everyone who's ever worn their heart on their sleeve.

Praise for My Heart on My Sleeve

" an inviting collection I found myself treating like a luxury box of chocolates. Which one first? What next? Is there one I want to save till last? ...a mature reflective take on a universal theme that is sometimes seen as the preserve of the young."
Suzy Ceulan Hughes, New Welsh Review

"The stories are edited with empathy and finesse... There are few of us who will not relate to one episode or another in this collection."
Norma Penfold, www.gwales.com
