Miriam, Daniel and Me by Euron Griffith

The Blurb

When he smiled it really did feel as if the chilly Caernarfonshire wind had stopped for a few seconds and as if the place had suddenly got warmer.

When Miriam fell in love with Padraig life seemed simple. But soon she discovered that love is a treacherous business. Everything changed when she met Daniel. She was taken down an unexpected path which would dictate and dominate the rest of her life.

Spanning three generations of a North Wales family in a Welsh-speaking community, Miriam, Daniel and Me is an absorbing and compelling story of family discord, political turmoil, poetry, jealousy…and football.

“…a confidently crafted novel about time, change and enduring love…and the seemingly random decisions that are made and borne by the generations who follow…” – Ed Thomas

The Review

This is a skilfully told tale, of unrequited love, heartbreaks day the what ifs we all think of.

It is set in Wales at a time of unrest, and explores the deeper subjects of religion, children born out of wedlock. It oozes with colourful imagery and prose that will keep you turning the pages. A rich, family saga that gives a varied, believable tale that sinks into you like a warm knife through butter.

I really enjoyed this and if you enjoy true to everyday family sagas, you’re bound to enjoy this.

Hi and welcome to my new blog. I’m reading and reviewing the books I read, after a long break I realised just how much I missed reviewing. I’ve been a voracious reader since childhood and I don’t imagine that changing. 
If you would like me to read and review a book you’re bringing out, please feel free to contact me. If it’s not my type of book I won’t waste your time by agreeing. I don’t promise 5 star reviews, and I know authors do appreciate feedback , but I can only promise an honest review. 
 Genres I love include crime, thriller, tartan noir is a stand out favourite. I do also enjoy horror, and other fiction/non fiction as they take my fancy. 
Please feel free to tell me if you have any recommendations for books to read whether they are already out or just about to. Reviews will be published on Twitter and Goodreads. Contact me here on the blog or email me at booksnbanter1@gmail.com 
Many thanks 
for visiting! Angi

  1. While you are entitled to your opinion, this is my personal book blog. I do this voluntarily because I enjoy reading and helping authors. I also work and there is only so much time in the day. I do not do spoilers. I suggest if you want something different you follow someone else. I wish you well.
