A follow up to How Green Was My Valley. While I far prefer the epic saga and homage to a hometown lost and gone in the dust and dirt of industry and coal mining, I liked this second book. How Green Was My Valley made me ache and long for a home long gone; this book answered some of the questions left unanswered by the first book, like "where did Huw Morgan go?", but it was at times hard to follow. There were too many characters thrown into the mix with crazy names and no character descriptions. ...more

A very disappointing sequel to How Green Was My Valley. An average story at best, and at times hard to follow.

Stupid. Full of adultery. Don't waste your time. Didn't finish it.

The story was hard to follow and uninteresting. I think the bulk of my disappointment is with the lack of description (and love) of the landscape and food compared to the beautiful, evocative descriptions in How Green Was My Valley. Even if it was with distaste or sadness, some more description would have been nice instead of colony issues and 'love' troubles all the time.

There were odd moments of good prose that promised the song of How Green Was My Valley, but these ended up being failed a

Huw's most irritating quality is his stubborn adherence to his own principles, come what may and never mind who else gets hurt. This is also one of his best attributes. I really enjoyed this novel though I see many were disappointed after How Green Was My Valley. I think it is best read as another Huw Morgan book rather than as a sequel to 'How Green etc'.

This is a pretty decent sequel. I loved reading about Huw Morgan and his life after he left the small Welsh mining town and settled in Argentina with other Welsh expats. He is no saint and he more than once tells others to mind their own business without concern for politeness. Go Huw!
Llewellyn's writing style is lyrical and beautiful and rough and all sorts of things at once.

I wanted to love this book. I loved the first one so much in college, and was excited to learn there were 2 sequels. The premise seemed interesting, but the prose didn't "sing" the way the first one did, and I found myself disappointed in the decisions Huw Morgan was making.

This book was way too slow for me. It was a disappointment after the first in the serieis. I didn't even finish it.

Richard Llewellyn (real name Richard Dafydd Vivian Llewellyn Lloyd) was a British novelist.

Llewellyn was born of Welsh parents in Hendon, north London in 1906. Only after his death was it discovered that his claim that he was born in St. Davids, West Wales was false, though of course he was of Welsh blood.

Several of his novels dealt with a Welsh theme, the best-known being How Green Was My Valley
