Book Review-A NIGHT IN ANNWN-Owen Jones

Thursday, February 25, 2016

We have all heard of near-death experiences and whether you believe in them or not this book will give you pause and make you think. Granted this is a novel but too many I have known have gone through this. This one is an uplifting experience which helps to change the persons life around for the better. It also delves into different religious beliefs and how all are really the same. Do you believe in dead spirits talking to the living? Have you ever had the feeling that someone is watching over you?

Whether you believe in any of this or not this tale will give you hope and perhaps even make you a better person who accepts everything and everyone for who they are.

About the Book: (from Amazon)

The Story of William Jones' Near-Death Experience

William Jones, a sheep farmer from the Brecon Beacons, had led a happy life, until his wife, Sarah, died young. It left him devastated and seemingly bent on self-destruction. His daughter, Becky tried to help, but even she was losing patience with her father.

One evening, he is certain that he has died and been put out of his misery, but it was not to be. He recovered. However his life was never to be the same again.

He had discovered Annwn where his wife lived, and his newly found vitality changed his life and that of all those with whom he came into contact.

A Night in Annwn is a love story that spans the greatest divide - that between life and death; a look at a near-death experience and a new take on the mythological Welsh Heaven, which is Annwn.

Be prepared to see another side of Welsh Celtic mythology, but you will never think of death in the same way again.
That is guaranteed!

About the Author: (from Amazon)

Author Owen Jones, from Barry, South Wales, came to writing novels relatively recently, although he has been writing all his adult life. He has lived and worked in several countries and travelled in many, many more.

He speaks, or has spoken, seven languages fluently and is currently learning Thai, since he lives in Thailand with his Thai wife of ten years.

"It has never taken me long to learn a language," he says, "but Thai bears no relationship to any other language I have ever studied before."

When asked about his style of writing, he said, "I'm a Celt, and we are Romantic. I believe in reincarnation and lots more besides in that vein. Those beliefs, like 'Do unto another...', and 'What goes round comes around', Fate and Karma are central to my life, so they are reflected in my work'.

His first novel, 'Daddy's Hobby' from the series 'Behind The Smile: The Story of Lek, a Bar Girl in Pattaya' has been followed by four sequels, but his largest collection is 'The Megan Series', eighteen novellas on the psychic development of a young teenage girl, the subtitle of which, 'A Spirit Guide, A Ghost Tiger and One Scary Mother!' sums them up nicely.
As Owen puts it:

'Born in the Land of Song, living in the Land of Smiles'.
