Bethan's lingering feelings for an American officer make it hard for her to readjust to married life. Tony's fiancee, a German refugee, arrives in Pontypridd to find herself shunned by all. And when she discovers Tony has lied to her, she must face the possibility that he is only marrying her to spite his family. Meanwhile, Alma and Charlie receive devastating news, which throws their whole world into confusion - and leaves Charlie to make an impossible choice. As the people of Pontypridd struggle to rebuild their lives, they discover that the end of war only marks the beginning of another more personal struggle...

Read an Excerpt

'Stop it. Both of you!' Diana grabbed Tony's arm to prevent him from slamming his fist into Ronnie's nose. Striking out blindly, Tony hurled Diana aside.

She screamed as she reeled over the easy chair into the window. She heard the glass shatter, felt the shards raining on to her head and body, heard Ronnie shout, saw blood ... But strangely there was no pain - no pain at all - as tidal waves of purple twilight moved in from the shadows, enveloping everything, even Ronnie's face fearful - and so very, very loving.
