The tale of identical twin brothers who toil on the family farm in the wild and vibrant land of Wales and experience the oddities, wonders, and tragedies of human experience.

Praise

“A masterpiece, a chronicle of ordinary lives told with extraordinary insight.” —St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“Scene after scene is brought to life with an enraptured attention that causes them to glow with an almost visionary light.” — The New York Times Book Review

“Remarkable…like a beautiful old quilt, made up of bright vivid patches, with scenes that surprise and delight and seem absolutely true.”— People

“A rare book, one of those splendid evocations of place made so justifiably famous by masters of the British novel in the past century: George Eliot, Hardy, Lawrence”— Houston Post
