Set in a small Welsh village in the 1950s, The Earth Hums in B Flat is a story of dark family secrets. It's filled with wonderful characters and written with insight and sparkling tenderness.

Gwenni Morgan can fly in her sleep - that's how she sees what's going on in the village, and how she tries to make some sense of her family and her world. But Gwenni's mother isn't too keen on her daughter's imaginative ways; she doesn't want anyone thinking her odd.

When Ifan Evans goes missing, Gwenni tries to help find him, much to her mother's distress. And as she begins to put the pieces together, a terrible truth is revealed.

'I loved this debut, which manages to give a young girl's narrative an authentically quirky aspect, without ever resorting to cutesiness or cosiness...Strachan eschews whimsy for reality in a beautifully written story about growing up.' Independent on Sunday
