Kingdom's Dream



A new novel in Iris Gower's powerful Firebird series, set amongst the romantic china potteries of South Wales.

Lovely Katie Cullen is all alone in the world. Her mam has died, and Swansea is now no fit place for a young girl on her own. The navvies who are building the new railway roam the streets on pay day looking for trouble, and the peaceful outskirts are transformed into a shanty town. When Katie meets handsome Bull Beynon, the foreman of the railway builders, she falls in love with him at once and longs to be protected by him. But Bull has his own woman, the spirited Rhiannon, who lives with him in their simple shack by the side of the railway track.

When their paths cross those of the women at the Mainwaring Pottery, Katie and Rhiannon find that they are caught in a network of lies and deceit. Llinos, the still-beautiful owner, is having to live with an old scandal, while her dear friend Eynon endures the marriage of his only daughter Jayne to the rascally Dafydd Buchan. Secrets and love affairs bring tragedy in their wake in the town now dominated by the monster they call the Great Western Railway.
