Description

It's 1926 and Wilfred Price, purveyor of superior funerals, is newly married to the beautiful Flora Myfanwy. His brief and painful marriage to Grace is in the past. He's busy with funerals - and preparing for fatherhood by reading a philosophy book and opening a paint and wallpaper business. As much as he loves Flora, he senses her distance from him - are marriage and fatherhood going to be very different from how Wilfred imagined?

Grace has fled to from Narberth to London, where she is working as a chambermaid at the luxurious Ritz Hotel. But Grace has a secret, one that can't be hidden forever, and binds her to her old life in west Wales.

Despite Wilfred's earnest effort to embrace the future, he is beginning to wonder if the past has too powerful a hold on him.

Praise for The Thoughts and Happenings of Wilfred Price:

'Light, compassionate drama about a small, very tightly bound, ancient corner of the world.' The Guardian.

'Wilfred's sentimental education is wrought so delightfully and affectionately.' Sunday Times.

'A delightful story of great charm, very quirky and original.' Jacqueline Wilson.
