Martha, Jack & Shanco by Caryl Lewis



Winner of the Wales Book of the Year 2005

Bound together by blood ties, Martha, Jack and Shanco live on a farm in west Wales where their lives unfold in the eerie half-presence of their dead parents. Glimmers of understanding punctuate their relationship with one another, but unspoken animosity seems to be the most potent ingredient. A lament for the prizes and the price of nurturing a landscape: an antidote for anyone impatient with those who choose to stay in one place.
