“The Children of Craig-y-nos” by Ann Shaw and Carole Reeves
About: Forty years of lost Welsh history. This is the only account in the world of life inside a childrens TB sanatorium. Ann Shaw was there for four years from 1950-54.
Along with my co-author Carole Reeves we reconstructed forty years of lost Welsh history - the story of life inside a children’s sanatorium, Craig-y-nos Castle, former home of opera diva Adelina Patti, in the Swansea valley.
