Buzz! Book Review

1941. In Pontypridd, Ronnie Ronconi has returned home from war-torn Italy. The family are certain he will once again take charge of the family in his own forceful way, but Ronnie's escape from Italy has left him a much changed man. He accepts the rights and freedoms of his younger siblings as he never has before, and even finds time to help others, particularly Alma, whose husband has been sent on a most dangerous mission. After the loss of his beloved wife, Ronnie is certain he will never look at a woman again; he certainly doesn't expect to fall in love - particularly with the wife of a friend... Diana is locked in an unhappy marriage - but can Ronnie and Diana put their own personal happiness ahead of that of an entire family?
Northern Echo - Steve Craggs

The coal dust soon gets in your lungs in this gritty tale of the war-torn lives of the community of Pontypridd where the Home front has its full ration of heartache and despair, thankfully lightened by that famous wartime spirit.

'I'm sorry ... '

'For Christ's sake stop apologising. Don't you understand that I can't take any more of this "you saved Maud's life by taking her to Italy", "she had happy years she never would have had if you hadn't married her". If I don't tell someone what really happened I'll go mad.'

'But . . . but . . . the tuberculosis returned,' shecstammered in bewilderment. 'You said as much, andcAndrew and Trevor warned us that it might ... '

'Forget the tea, Diana. Sit down, and then I'll tell you exactly how good a husband I was to Maud.'
