Rhiannon, Blodeuwedd, Branwen and Olwen - thus begins a litany of names which conjures up the enchanting (and often enchanted) women from the Mabinogi, those ancient legends that are still an inspiration in Celtic countries.

Other women from Welsh folklore are also featured here: Melangell, who protected the wild creatures; Dwynwen, patron saint of lovers; manipulative Ceridwen who could take any shape she chose.

Jenny Sullivan has found the voice of each of these women, and tells every woman's tale with the grace and wit of a true storyteller.

This collection of ten stories will delight contemporary readers, just as they entertained audiences who heard them told hundreds of years ago.
