The Dreamers is written in luminous prose and is a startling, provocative and beautiful novel about the possibilities contained within our waking days, and even more within our dreams.

Hudson Box Office (HBO) - Keeping Faith

Keeping Faith is a Welsh thriller television series created by Matthew Hall. It was first broadcast in Welsh with English subtitles, but an English version was later broadcast to the whole of the UK due to it's popularity. It stars Eve Myles as Faith Howells, a solicitor at a family-run law firm. Her husband, Evan, disappears shortly after the birth of their third child. It was described in The Guardian as a bit like Big Little Lies relocated to rural Wales. The library has just acquired the first series. For more details click here.
