Mefus yn y Glaw gan Mari Emlyn

Mefus yn y Glaw by Mari Emlyn

Mefus yn y Glaw by Mari Emlyn

Dyma stori sy'n dilyn diwrnod ym mywyd Lili Daniels. Awdures 50 mlwydd oed ydi Lili, mae hi eisioes wedi ysgrifennu pedair nofel ond er iddi drio mae'n cael trafferth darganfod ei hawen i ysgrifennu ei phumed nofel. Mae'r stori yn un doniol a dwfn sy'n darlunio cyfeillgarwch a sefyllfa merched hŷn. Llyfr hawdd i'w ddarllen. Wedi mwynhau ei bigo fyny i ddarllen ychydig o dudalennau pob noson.
