“Two lives” is a romantic story written by Helen Naylor and was first published in 2001 by Cambridge.
Set in a little coal miner village called Tredonald in Wales in 1946, the novel tells the story of two sixteen year old lovers, Megan and Huw, from different social backgrounds.
Megan Jenkins is a good girl who lives with her parents. She studies and works in the family´s shop in the town.
Huw Thomas lives with his father, David, and his brother, Gareth. He studies and works in the mine too, which is the principal source of jobs to people of the town. Their life is hard because they have to survive with little money.
This book shows how love and time can overcome the difficulties of life. The story is really wonderful, romantic and realistic. The reader should think that the story maybe a pain but nothing about this because he´ll find a fresh, sweet, interesting romance.
I think this book could be read by all kind of readers that want to keep a good story in their hearts.
