1899 – A seismic change takes place in the community around the Frongoch lead mine, as it falls into the hands of a Belgian company. The mine is modernised, and a number of miners are imported from Italy to expand the workforce.
For Owain and Ceri Thomas, this is the start of a chain of events that brings conflict to their tranquil valley, as one by one their children move away out of necessity. As the mine collapses, Owain and Ceri begin a long journey to find themselves and rediscover their children. But when tragedy strikes, Owain’s one-time light in the darkness needs rescue. Can Owain also repay the debt and find his own salvation?
This is the third of the Owain Thomas (mining) trilogy.
