“A Time for Silence”

“Gwenllian Lewis married John Owen in 1933. Seventy-five years later, their granddaughter Sarah comes upon the ruined cottage where they had once farmed, and the discovery inspires her to investigate her family history. But when she unearths a shocking secret, her interest becomes an obsession. Escaping from her own tragedy, she immerses herself in an older one; a tragedy that overturns her fantasies of an idyllic past, for the story of Gwen and her husband John Owen was anything but idyllic. When the full unpalatable truth dawns on Sarah, she finds herself rethinking her own life.”

Priododd Gwenllian Lewis â John Owen yn 1933 a 75 mlynedd yn ddiweddarach mae ei hwyres yn darganfod yr hen dyddyn lle bu’r ddau yn byw. Wrth iddi archwilio ei hachau taflir goleuni ar fywyd oedd ymhell iawn o fod yn rhamantus a daw cyfrinach deuluol yn obsesiwn.

When a man is found murdered at Bethesda House, a home for adults with learning difficulties, local people start to accuse the home’s residents of being behind the killing. The victim was a manager at the home, and seemingly a respectable and well-liked family man. DI Winter Meadows knows there’s more to the case than meets the eye at first, though. As he and his team investigate, Meadows discovers a culture of fear at the home – and some very sinister dealings going on between the staff. Does the answer to the case lie in the relationships between the staff and the residents – or is there something even more sinister afoot?

The second in the thrilling DI Meadows series by Cheryl Rees-Price.

Ar ôl i ddyn cael ei lofruddio ym Methesda House, cartref i oedolion ag anawsterau dysgu, mae pobl leol yn dechrau cyhuddo preswylwyr y cartref o’r drosedd, wedi’r cyfan roedd yn  ddyn teulu parchus.. Wrth i DI Meadows ymchwilio i’r mater – daw mwy a mwy o bethau sinistr i’r wyneb. Frozen Minds, yw yr ail yng nghyfres ditectif DI Meadows.
