Hello there, my name is Jacob Ifan Gwytherin – you can call me Jay for short. I’m 24 years old and I live in a sleepy valley in Wales in a place called Aden-Long. It is a small village with just a few houses and a church.

At the end of the valley is the Mill, and this is where I work. We make flour to sell to our community and some bags go out to nearby villages. I’ve been working here since I was 15 years old.



Hello, I’m Martha and I live at the Mill in Aden-Long. My father owns the Mill and my mother makes lots of lovely bread and cakes with the flour we produce.

I am lucky to have my beloved Jacob working at the MIll. We have been best friends since we were at school together. I have a dog called Meg, we’re inseparable. She’s a black and white collie and lives here at the Mill with the family.



My name is Leola and my story is very complicated. You will be able to read all about my adventures in the story, so for now I will just say that I am 16 years old and I have long blonde hair.

My life here has been quite different to that of Jacob and Martha and we met in the most unusual way. We all hope you enjoy our story and music.
