A time when young men ride through the night smashing and burning the symbols of their oppression. The Mortymer family have left their home in the iron-making country of Blaenafon, retreating to the old farmlands of the west. Young Jethro Mortymer joins the rioters in taking up arms, even as he is tortured by his own struggle to conceal the love he has for the beautiful Mari, his brother's wife.
This is a brilliant continuation of Alexander Cordell's classic story of 19th century Wales which began with The Rape of the Fair Country.
