A Light in the Darkness

A Light in the Darkness

I’ll just leave this here…

By Geraint Roberts

Stuck in a limbo and desperate to do something meaningful, what to do? That is where writing began for me. A creative way of expressing myself and a chance to harness my wondering imagination. I close my eyes and I'm there. Wish I'd picked 'there' as a warm sunny day on a sandy beach, with the waves gently lapping on the shore...but I have to let the story load in my mind, then watch it unfold, wherever it may be. Currently I'm on a windy bridge, or a Devon beach, or a Cornish ti mine, or a submarine, or looking towards a Hebridean port...

I have just read A Light in the Darkness and absolutely loved it. A beautiful account of a hard life in rural Wales. I would love to find the two books which I believe came before this one so hope I can find them soon.


Thanks for your kind comments and taking the time to send them! Despite the fact all three volumes use the real history of the mine as a back story, the third one is a bit of a favourite, as it does feature the Italian workers and allows me to use some history of my home town that I acquired over the years from reading old newspapers and reading books by people like Will Troughton!

You can find the prequels to this for sale on this website (also the two volumes about Dafydd’s story. One day, I’ll finish the final book in that series…). It will depend on where you are geographically as to how best to advise where they are sold. I am aware that the Vale of Rheidol railway does sell all the Welsh titles, their shop is open M-F . The Talyllyn Railway does as well. In Aberystwyth, I have seen the titles in Siop y Pethe and Smiths, as well as Siop Inc. is a website too. That’s off the top of my head!

Regards – and Happy Christmas
