Publishers Description Raised in a poverty ridden coal-mining town, Nellie Morgan has her share of misfortune. Orphaned at fifteen, alone and penniless she works as a maid, then governess for the people who were guilty of her father's death. A kind and forgiving girl, endearing herself to fellow servants, her Christian influence serves to change the household where she lives. A mystery surrounding Nellie's true identity, reveals she has family, after all. But soon tragedy will bombard her again. Forced to lean on her faith, she becomes a living testimony of God's love. Her life changes when she meets and marries Teilo Williams, a baker's apprentice. Soon, the actions of the local Doctor prove to be more than a little suspect, especially when Nellie becomes involved. The Nellie Morgan Welsh Series are books on generational faith. Following a family's tribulations through hard times, wars and the trials of the twenty first century. Barbara Williams Cook was born in Cardiff South Wales; the first grandchild of Eleanor and Teilo Williams. Barbara began writing short stories as a child, soon after WWII. Toys were scarce, but paper could be scrounged from the local butcher. On this, Barbara's first stories were penned. After receiving a scholarship to Music and Drama College, she became a member of a light Opera Company. Painting has also been a hobby, and while living in New Mexico, her paintings were sold in the Santa Fe area. Because of the extraordinary faith her Grandmother portrayed, and her kindness to others, Barbara felt Nellie's story should be told. The author will continue writing about the family, bringing it to present day and ultimately her own life story. Ms. Cook emigrated to the US in 1979. She and her husband live in a log cabin home in Colorado.
