When the young princess Melangell travelled from Ireland across the sea to Wales, she wanted to live a simple life somewhere away from the difficulties she had faced at home. But the peace of the valley where she lived was shattered when the angry Prince Brochfael came to hunt there. How did the frail Melangell defend the hare and other creatures from this fierce hunter?

The hare himself tells the story of Melangell in this book. Because of her kindness to him and other small creatures she is remembered forever in the tiny church of Pennant Melangell in Montgomeryshire.
