In novella A Thing of Nought, Hilda Vaughan returns hauntingly to the theme of lovers parted by the world. Megan Lloyd's handsome lover Penry Price departs for Australia, to find work and build them a home, but is thwarted at every turn by drought, poverty and illness, and finally begs her to think of him as dead. Heartbroken and lonely, Megan succumbs to the attentions of strong-minded preacher Rees Lloyd, but is just married when an unexpected face returns.

Author Biography

Hilda Vaughan lived from 1892 to 1985. She was educated privately but her experiences with the Women's Land Army during WWI exposed her to a different side of life. Battle to the Weak, her first novel, was published in 1925. She is known for her acute ear and ability to capture the unique style of speech of the people of Radnorshire, as well as her insight into women's daily lives.
