Kate Roberts was born in the village of Rhosgadfan, on the slopes of Moel Tryfan, Caernarfonshire (Gwynedd today). She was the first child of Owen Roberts, a quarryman in the local slate industry, and Catrin Roberts. Perhaps her most successful book of short stories is Te yn y grug (Tea in the Heather) (1959), a series about children. Of the novels that Roberts wrote, perhaps the most famous was Traed mewn cyffion (Feet in Chains) (1936), which reflected the hard life of a slate-quarrying family. In 1960 she published Y lôn wen, a volume of autobiography.

The book is comical due to the clash between the commune lifestyle and the ideals of the locals. The Gower Peninsula is described beautifully in this book, and Dunthorne’s contemporary novels, talking about the Wales of now, can only be seen as an allure to his homeland. Born in 1891, Kate Roberts was one of the most important Welsh female novelists of the 20th century. Roberts also wrote short stories; Tea In The Heather is a book of short childhood stories. The main character in this slightly nostalgic set of tales is a young teenager named Winnie, who leads her little friend Bet into all sorts of trouble.

"Tea in the Heather is Kate Roberts's classic tale of family and community in the hill-farms and slate quarries of Gwynedd. Beautifully realized, never idealized, it follows the life of Begw Gruffydd, the little girl who grows from the age of four to nine in the book. With her eye for detail and her ear for dialogue Roberts's portrayal of childhood and childish concerns is charming and convincing. This is a time of friendships and rivalries, small luxuries and swift punishments, exciting excursions and tearful disappointments. And there is the sometimes hostile world of adults to contend with. Translated from the Welsh by Wynn Griffith."
