It is summer in Caernarfon. Sixteen year old student Ben is adapting to his new home in the Ceffyl Du pub, and to the strangeness of an unfamiliar place and people. As his father renovates the old building, they make the disturbing discovery of a child's bones, setting Ben on a journey of decisions. Should he do what his father asks? Can he live with himself if he does? The dilemma of the bones weaves through his uneasy encounters with the town lads, Skids, Dilys and Sosban, and his feelings for Haf, the girl who has attracted his attention from the very start of this new life. In this thoughtful novel, Michael Prince tells the story of an outsider finding his way in; of a young person working out how to be the person he wants to be.
