Sing For Your Supper

By

Tudor Morgan refuses to go down the mine; his ambition is to make a name as a singer. When he and Karen and their baby Delia move to Cardiff in search of better opportunities, Karen has to find a job while Tudor cares for Delia by day and sings in clubs at night.

Tudor pretends to be an out-of-work miner (it is 1926) and busks, sending little Delia round with a hat. Karen has to cope while he is in prison, and forgives him when he returns. He has not, however, changed his ways and things get worse.

Karen’s love for Tudor is all-forgiving, despite the problems he causes. She is warm. steadfast, and determined that they will all survive. From a naive young girl she matures into a strong woman, and she keeps the family together and never completely loses faith in Tudor. This saga of life in 1920s Cardiff will satisfy all Rosie Harris’s fans.
