Malcolm Bright, brand new museum curator in a small Welsh Border town, is a little lonely until – acting as emergency archaeological consultant on a new housing development – he crosses the path of Rob Escley, aka Dirty Rob, who makes Mal’s earth move in more ways than one.

Then Rob discovers something wonderful, and together they must combat greedy developers and a treasure hunter determined to get his hands on the find. Are desperate measures justified to save the bones of our fathers? Will Dirty Rob live up to his reputation? Do museum curators really do it meticulously?

Answers must be found for the sake of Mal’s future, his happiness and his heart.

Author Bio

Elin Gregory lives in South Wales and works in a museum in a castle built on the edge of a Roman Fort! She reckons that's a pretty cool job.

Elin usually writes on historical subjects, and enjoys weaving the weird and wonderful facts she comes across in her research into her plots. She likes her heroes hard as nails but capable of tenderness when circumstances allow. Often they are in danger, frequently they have to make hard choices, but happy endings are always assured.

Current works in progress include one set during the Great War, another in WW2, one set in the Dark Ages and a series of contemporary romances set in a small town on the Welsh border.

The Bones of Our Father by Elin Gregory was an interesting insight into the world of archeology in a small Welsh town. Museum curator, Mal was tasked with the preservation of an archeological discovery made by local heavy equipment operator Rob. The two men hit it off and began a relationship somewhat fraught with conflict.

I enjoyed both characters, but I have to say I connected more with the wonderfully written and colorful supporting cast, than Rob and Mal. I found Rob a tad bit immature and Mal a slight pushover.

The book overall kept me intrigued, as I enjoyed the archeological aspects, but other than that, I found its pace slow and language (I did not understand much of the Welsh “speak”, which made it even harder for ne to connect) difficult to understand.

This was my first introduction to Ms. Gregory, and I look forward to reading her work again.
