“Will I always be so alone, living as a dragon among the sheep?”

Jane Dawson is an American on a journey of midlife makeover. Abandoning a tech career in Boston, she and her sheepdog, Moss, move to Wales in search of a simpler life, connection and community without the filter of the Internet. But who knew she would stumble over the red Welsh dragon, y Ddraig Goch?

Actually, she stumbles over her own suitcase and falls on her face in the middle of Main Street. But her plea for help (or maybe it was just swearing) is answered by the shy local dragon who doesn’t know he’s a dragon—Stewart Rygby.

But what rational, sane person believes in dragons and fairies? Why have such myths and legends persisted in the misty green hills of Wales over the aeons? And why does Moss need to mark everything in sight—including her new landlord?

Join us as our dragons awaken from their slumber in Green Hills and Daffodils!

Reviews:on Editors Weekly:

"Immaculately edited, this seemingly lighthearted romp, burgeoning with interesting characters, actually has something to say."

Green Hills and Daffodils follows the effervescent Jane as she finds herself in a new town, surrounded by quirky characters that both introduce her to the local culture, and allow her seemingly gentle but ultimately confident optimism to shine through. She is clumsy, but does not seem to mind, taking things not so seriously. One of her favorite people, the undeniably lovable Stewart, is trying to discover himself, and Jane helps nudge him along the way.

It is evident that Kendrick loves the characters – not just Jane and Stewart, but all of them. There is a realness to their personalities, and everything they say and do is just as telling as the subtle silences in between. Although the novel initially focuses on Jane, it seamlessly jumps between the differing characters, and Stewart often becomes a co-protagonist in sections, which feels natural.

An exploration of inner suppression, the fear of being oneself, and the powers that are unleashed when one learns to accept oneself, Kendrick’s novel goes beyond the scope of LGBTQ issues, illustrating how anyone, with the right support, can learn to love even the most hidden parts of themselves.
