Author Nick Sweetabout this book: Welsh coal miner Owein falls in love with the village beauty Rhiannon, but what he doesn't know is that she is secretly in love with his academic brother, Selwyn, who in turn is in love with Rhiannon's brother, Bryn. What ensues is a moving and poignant tale of love, desire and loss told against the background of a Welsh mining village and also Oxford, after Selwyn and Bryn both win places at the university there. And while the life of academia and the life down the pit may at first appear to be poles apart in the reader's imagination, slowly these two worlds converge as the story progresses, until events reach an exciting and surprising climax. Although Oxford opens doors to Selwyn, in turns of making new experiences available to him, and enabling him to mix with people he would never have met in his home village, the winds of change also bring confusion and heartbreak where he is concerned, just as they do for Rhiannon and Owein. All of the characters suffer in different ways, and the reader is able to witness how each of them seeks to deal with the problems they are faced with...
