Welsh Myths and Legends - St Cybi's Well

Fynnon Gybi (St Cybi's Well) in Llangybi, near Lampeter, South Wales, is now a popular tourist attraction.  

In the past, young maidens would cast a fine linen handkerchief onto the water, and watch to see which way it floated. If it drifted to the north, the words of their suitors would be deemed false, but if it drifted to the South, his words of love would be true. They might also use a feather, or a piece of lambswool snagged on a hedgerow. Another custom was for sufferers of aches and pains to bathe in the water, then sleep under a nearby stone. If they slept well, their recovery was assured, if not, one can only assume they kept on suffering. 

I think I prefer the story of the love test  myself. (But then, I am a romance author! 😉)

 #ChildrenInRead. U K readers will be familiar with CHILDREN IN NEED  which takes place every November and raises funds for deserving children all over the world. Children in Read is part of this and hundreds of authors have donated signed books to help this great cause.

I'm so happy to be taking part, and you can bid now for a signed paperback of the first book in my Destiny Trilogy - it's complete and a 'standalone'. I'll include any dedication you wish, and also some 'swag' goodies!


You can bid now for this or any of the hundreds of wonderful books in all genres. Go on, treat yourself and help a very good cause at the same time!
