Yaiza reviews Two Lives
Title: “Two lives”
Author: Helen Naylor
This is a book from the publisher Cambridge University Press.
First published in 2001.
The novel tells a love story between two teenagers, Huw and Megan who live in Tredonald in Wales, around the year 1946.
They fall in love but he goes to Canada so that his father does not start drinking or suffering again. And they know nothing more of each other. He sends letter to her but her father does not let her see them. Fifty years later they know something else about each other. Huw discovers he is a father. Huw comes back to Tredonald to meet his daughter. Megan is getting married to Paul, but at the end she will marry Huw.
Huw Thomas: he is 16 years old. He lives with his father, David, and his brother, Gareth. His mother died when he was younger. He works in the mine with his brother but he studies too. He goes to Canada so that his father does not start drinking or suffering again.
Gareth Thomas: Huw’s brother works and dies in the mine.
David Thomas: Huw’s father drinks and spends all the money on it.

Beth Jones: Megan’s daughter lives in Cardiff.
Philip Jones: Beth’s husband likes golf.
Paul: Megan’s fiancé.
Mike: Huw’s son lives in Toronto.
Rebecca: Mike’s wife.
I love this story because the plot is the best; it is a story that grips you. The best part is at the end when you know with whom she is going to stay and the worst part is when they are separated. This story almost made me cry.
This story made me learn new words that I didn’t know.
I recommend this book because the love story between Huw and Megan is very interesting because you do not know how it will end until the end.
