It’s nineteenth century Swansea and the bustling town is dominated by several industries: coal, copper and iron. People at all levels of society must work tirelessly to maintain what they possessed; each did it in their own way, and inevitably many suffered in the process. Families are the mainstay of social order, and the desire to do well motivated many.

Edward Daniel is a man who wants to achieve wealth and social standing but lacks the personality to do so. Follow this very real character as he struggles to find his place in society and prove himself to be a man of substance. Fighting against fraud claims involving Swansea Town Council, juggling social and political aspirations and attempting to have a family, Edward’s life is one of many twists and turns.

This novel is an imaginative and captivating historical account that aims to ‘tell it as it is’ regarding the factual details of Edward’s life. Readers are invited to lose themselves in the past and witness the tribulations and celebrations in the life of this ambitious, determined individual.

About the Author

Edward Llewellyn-Jones belongs to a family with ancient roots in the county of Glamorgan. His grandfather grew up in Swansea but left at the age of fifteen, and that is the last direct link with the city in his immediate family. Stories about the family and the town, as it was then, circulated freely at home as he grew up, so the modern city holds a special place in his affections.

Edward is a holder of a PhD in Theology and has taught, lectured and written on the subject. He also has a strong interest in the relationship between Christianity and politics that led him over a period of twenty-five years to serve as a councillor on two different local authorities in Nottinghamshire, where he now lives.
