Drawing on reports of visits to the area by Celtic Saints, stories from and of local churches and the history of tin mining and metalwork in the area, Jean weaves a clever and innovative tale of interest to readers who enjoy local history and, of course, it’s of particular appeal to Christians.

As Jean writes “Whatever you take away from this little book, it is written in prayer and good faith….it is a work of imagination and … reflects the peace and holiness found here.”

An unusual read. I enjoyed it; it was original, just the right length and well imagined.
