The old valleys have got something flying about in them beside the coal dust...Voices of the Children is a delicate and heartfelt story of the golden, ephemeral, uncertain world of childhood. Set in a rural mining village in South Wales in the years leading up to the Second World War, George Ewart Evans has recreated a magical but alive world that will resonate with our memories, real and imagined, of childhood. The hills were freedom, and the valley was the shop, milking the cow, errands, difficult customers, and, last of all, the new baby.

About the Author

George Ewart Evans was born in 1909, in the mining village of Abercynon. He was one of a family of eleven children whose parents ran a grocer's shop: the setting of his semi-autobiographical novel Voices of the Children(1947). After education at Mountain Ash County School and University College Cardiff, where he read classics and trained as a teacher, he had ambitions of being a writer. He published verse and short stories - many with a Welsh background - in various literary journals. In 1948 he gave up teaching and turned from writing fiction to producing a sheaf of studies, now regarded as classics, based on conversations with his elderly East Anglian neighbours.
