The Voices of the Children

Rate this:

The old valleys have got something flying about in them beside the coal dust.

'Voices of the Children' is a delicate and heart-felt story of the golden, ephemeral, uncertain world of childhood. Set in a rural mining village in South Wales in the years leading up to the Second World War, George Ewart Evans has recreated a magical but alive world that will resonate with our memories, real and imagined, of childhood.

The hills were freedom, and the valley was the shop, milking the cow, errands, difficult customers, and, last of all, the new baby.
