Martha, Jack & Shanco is a strong and captivating novel which focuses on the story of two elderly brothers and their sister who are bound by family circumstances to a life of hardship on a rural farm in south west Wales. Primeval in setting and content, this is a novel where the land itself with the beasts of the farm and the raucous crows animate the narrative. Lewis brings to life the Welsh rural tradition of farms being passed from generation to generation, and the problems that this can cause. The siblings have had their home passed down to them, and as they cannot afford to sell up and split the profits, are tied to it indefinitely.
