It is wonderfully engrossing and keeps the reader wanting to know what happens next.Judith Thomas is an uninteresting person in her own eyes, twenty, without a boyfriend and celebrating her birthday with her parents. Her mother gives her a diary to put in her daily mundane experiences.

Her father gives her a manuscript that has been passed down through the family- it is ancient and written in ‘Old Welsh’ so no one has been able to read it. Judith is given the initially onerous task of translating ‘The Testament’ for her father.What she discovers is that instead of being a boring account of life in the sixteen hundreds ‘The Testament’ is a remarkable account of her family history. She joins a Welsh evening class who assist with the translation and what unfolds is a grim piece of history, the story begins simply- ‘The Testament of Jane McCarthy 1603...

Personal recollections leading to our flight from Flintshire.’With Judith’s own research taking an unexpected turn she finds herself being falsely accused of terrorisms and the experience of being incarcerated without any evidence for this is unnerving, especially when it brings home the helplessness Jane McCarthy must have felt when her best friend is falsely accused of Witchcraft and sent to the gallows.During her journey of her own year of journal entries Judith completes her Thesis after successful trial of a beneficial agricultural nature, makes special friends at the Welsh group, finds love and a branch of the family she never knew existed.

All this she shares with her parents and they make the pilgrimage to a grave site that becomes personally significant.I can tell you, from my experience,this is a riveting story. I suggest you buy a copy to enjoy yourself.
