Accuse me of leveling or indigestion or what you will. I still don't think much of this. There's little to find exception with --- but nothing to rave over either. I wouldn't rate any of the nine stories very highly for classroom use --- there's more effective stuff in Gardam's Few Fair Days. The tales cover two families --- one native, one 'incomer' --- who are neighbors on the Cambrian feels. Low key adventures over a period of years (the last story is set in a post-oil 1999) show the continuity of the country life and celebrate the local characters. Minority interest.
