    Om Ride the White Stallion

    "The foundry was working at full pressure. In spite of the dismal conditions - the stifling heat, the silica dust that hung in clouds in the air, the crude ventilation, and the strenuous labour - the men seemed happy and companionable. A certain measure of security had come at last after the long years of unemployment; the dread of the dole was behind them".Life in the foundry is changing Ieuan Morgan, whose hands, once familiar only with the feel of books are now dark, knotted and fiercely strong. He dreams of writing and the day his young love Sally will come home from the convalescence home. When that day arrives Ieuan's life starts to feel complete and marriage only deepens that conviction. But much longed for success with his writing brings with it new temptations, when Stella Courtland, the sophisticated editor of a fashionable magazine enters the young man's life.Ride the White Stallion is the sequel to Farewell Innocence, charting the trials and travails of Ieuan Morgan at the foundry and in his family life. It is an account of a young man's creative awakening amid the challenges of domestic penury and downright hard graft. A portrait of an industrial town as well as a convincing character study, Ride the White Stallion is shot through with truth and honesty, twin hallmarks of Glynne-Jones's work.
