Back cover copy

Rosie - eighteen, beautiful and vivacious - is in love with Watt Bevan, the manager of the famous Mainwaring Pottery where her mother Pearl works. But Watt is mourning the loss of a former lover, and when Pearl falls ill and Watt becomes the protector of the family Rosie realises that her feelings for him are not returned. Meanwhile Llinos Mainwaring's romantic marriage to Joe, the American Indian who stole her heart all those years ago, seems to be in trouble, and Llinos - hurt and bewildered by Joe's apparent neglect - finds the ownership of her family pottery to be increasingly burdensome. Into all these lives intrudes the troublesome Mrs Sparks, voluptuous wife of the local bank manager. Her scheming involves Llinos, Joe and Watt - and when she enmeshes the innocent Rosie in her net the whole future of the pottery looks threatened. In this powerful new novel Iris Grower continues the romantic story of the South Wales potteries, begun in Firebird and Dream Catcher.show more
