A Haven From Hitler

by Heini Gruffudd

(Y Lolfa 9.95)

A haven from Hitler not only shows the fragility of society and the resilience of the human spirit, it’s also the story of one woman and her extraordinary family.

Written by Swansea lecturer Heini Gruffudd it is a translation of Yr Erlid, winner of the 2013 Welsh Language Book Of The Year prize.

It’s understandable why Gary is so upset, and his wild pacing across the hardwood floors of The House on the Hill made me very grateful that there was not a full moon.  I could only imagine the damage his Werewolf claws would have done to my floors.

These Cat Ladies, as Gary insists I call them, want a law requiring Maine Werewolves to be on leashes whenever they are outside of their homes.

“First off, Maine is our home, and we…
