Whose Coat is that Jacket Hanging on the Floor? Stories of Welsh Mothers and their Lost Children
Whose Coat is that Jacket Hanging on the Floor? tells the stories of three Welsh mothers whose children were permanently removed from their care.
In applying the term “maternal outcasts” to these mothers, Broadhurst and Mason (2013, p. 296) describe their situation as a “by-product of modern child protection systems that are adept at identifying and safeguarding many children, but less able to respond to the continuing needs of parents”.
“Child removal can no longer be seen as the end of the problem.” (Broadhurst and Mason, 2017, p. 45)
In his seminal book Collective Narrative Practices, Denborough (2008, pp. 27–28) states that “far too often collective histories of trauma are forgotten”.
Whose Coat is that Jacket Hanging on the Floor? serves as a historical testimony and collection of narratives in response to collective trauma.

The Morgaine Cycle One: Gwyliwr
When Gwyar ferch Onbrawst a Meurig of South Wales happened upon the Queen betraying her brother by her own son, Mordred, she fled Caerleon for the vast wood of Broceliande, there to spend long years punishing unfaithful men, luring lovers untrue to her lair and trapping them in a tower of skulls, none to escape her judgement.
But before she was tangled in the web of family sorrows, forbidden affairs, statecraft, and the politics of kingmaking and survival during and after the Saxon Wars, Gwyar had another life, other sons, and other rivals.
For before Camelot there was Atlantis, and before Lancelot and Merlin there was Uriel, and Lilith.
And before the dark, slight Silure with gold-speckled bronze eyes and raven hair was the towering titaness from the sea, made by an abominable act between a fallen angel and a daughter of Eve.
Before Gwyar, who is Morgaine of the Faeries, there was The Morrigan, a Primal Witch, amongst the first of the Fae.
The Morgaine Cycle One: Gwyliwr takes the reader to the other side of the Great Flood, to the world that was.
A world of angels, and of Watchers lusting after God’s most precious and unique creation: Woman.
A world of giants and monsters. Of gods and heroes, and every kind of Otherworldly Being.
