Item description, condition report, payment options and related products below

A first UK edition, first print hardback copy of THE WELSH GIRL, by Peter Ho Davies and published by Hodder & Stoughton (Sceptre) in 2007. Signed on a 'Welsh Girl' bookplate by the author on the title page (see picture below).

The book is in very good condition (green boards with bright silver lettering to spine) with only minor wear to the dust jacket, which is not price clipped (rubbing/creasing to edges, light bumping to corners). Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no other inscriptions. Slight spinal lean.

In the wake of D-Day, the war brings two very different Germans to Wales. Captain Rotheram, a German Jewish refugee working to British Intelligence, arrives in the Black Mountains to interview a notorious captive - Rudolf Hess. Further north, Karsten Simmering, a dutiful soldier struggling to reconcile his surrender with his sense of honour, is incarcerated in a new POW camp on the outskirts of a remote Snowdonian village. There he encounters Esther Evans, the seventeen-year-old daughter of a fiercely nationalist sheep-farmer, who dreams of a life beyond the narrow confines of her valley. As their lives intersect, all three will come to question where they belong and where their loyalties lie.

Peter Ho Davies's thought-provoking and profoundly moving first novel traces a perilous wartime romance as it explores the bonds of love and duty that hold us to family, country, and ultimately our fellow man. Vividly rooted in history and landscape, The Welsh Girl reminds us anew of the pervasive presence of the past, and the startling intimacy of the foreign.
