Imagine Tirion's feelings, ten years old, and about to begin work at the big house, Llancaiach Fawr. For spirited Tirion it is her first time away from home, but at least it is a chance to get away from Master Eyes and Ears, her harsh and unsympathetic stepfather. Taught to read and write by her real father, Tirion keeps an "official" diary for the eyes of the grown-ups in her life, but confides her real thoughts and feelings to her secret journal.

Follow the ups and downs of servant life-including the thrills and spills of a royal visit-in this lively historical adventure by Jenny Sullivan.

Tirion's Secret Journal is the Tir na n-Og Award winner 2006 for best English-language book with an authentic Welsh background
