Michael Hillabout this book: LOVE: we all want it, in all its diversity and variety. It satisfies us, completes us
LOSS; the worse thing. Of any kind.
POSSESSION: what we own, what's ours, what we love and fight not to lose.
LLYWELYN loved his wife and son. He lost them both when the reservoir came
LLYWELYN loved his land where he had lived and farmed all his life. As had his ancestors before him.
LLYWELYN now must fight to keep possession of his land, Nery's his daughter and little Davie, his grandson, and perhaps his sanity
Around him are Megan, Tom, Iolo, Reese, Meredith and all the others living their lives in a quiet corner of Wales. Then came the government men, Charles Spicer, Bob MacIntyre, Brendan Tuomey, ordered to build a reservoir to cope with the water shortage of an ever increasingly thirsty population and their technoworld. Crissie and her friends, hippies and activists, looking for the latest cause and demo, and somewhere cool to live; and Howard, doing his PHD research on land, Llywelyn's, untouched by the increasing agricultural industrialisation of the late 20th century.
'Llywelyn' is a story of love and loss: of how a group of people with different wishes and desires, come together in a struggle to achieve their hopes for their lives.
