 Pembrokeshire Folk Tales 

In this  addition to the growing list of local folk tale collections from History Press, Christine takes us back to the ancient world of the Mabinogion, where Princes move easily between Pembrokeshire and the underworld, and forward to our own time, when an entire village is suddenly invaded from space.

As she retells these tales, Christine takes us on a breathtaking journey along the lanes, up and down the cliffs, over the wild Preseli Hills from where the Bluestones of Stonehenge were taken, and into valleys dark and secret that they are barely known in the bustling towns of Tenby and FIshguard. She shows that Pembrokeshire fully deserves its title – Gwlad yr Hud – the Enchanted Land.

“I really enjoyed it and know I will pick up on a lot more second time through. As I was reading it was as if you were here telling the stories. I could see you and hear your voice so clearly. It is a wonderful book – congratulations. I love the way you have woven it all together and how you are able to draw the ‘listener’ into worlds within worlds.” Robyn Wright, Nr.Castlemaine, Victoria

“The book took me quite a while to finish, due to the nature of how I read the stories: I kept the book next to my bed/desk, and every so often, I would pick it up and have a little narrative hit; like having a big box of chocolates, full of treats and delights!” Benjamin Poole.
