Wales is a mountainous country that borders England.
In 1857 Edmund Herondale and his wife Linette moved to Wales and lived near Dolgellau in the shadow of Cadair Idris for years, until their daughter Ella died and son Will disappeared. By 1876, Edmund gambled their house away and they were forced to move.
