The triumphant climax to the Firebird saga.
Rhiannon, proud and spirited, is alone in the world after Bull Beynon, her one-time lover, marries sweet young Katie Cullen. Facing destitution, but determined to become respectable, Rhiannon obtains a job as maid to unhappy Janey Buchan, who takes a liking to the young girl and teaches her ladylike ways. But Janey's rascally husband Dafydd, once the lover of Llinos Mainwaring, causes Janey great unhappiness, and eventually she runs away, leaving Rhiannon once more without a job or a home.
In desperation, knowing that little stands between her and a return to her old life, she finds herself at the Paradise Park Hotel. At one time scarcely more than a bawdy house, it has now changed hands and Rhiannon starts working there, gradually helping to transform it from a place of ill-repute to one of the Finest hotels in Swansea. The only thing lacking in her life is love, and she fears that she may have to live out her days alone...
The triumphant finale to Iris Gower's Firebird sequence, set amongst the romantic clay potteries of South Wales.
