I love this story, but I feel (having swam in this lake!) all should know that it's Llyn-Y-Fan-Fach (pronounced Lin-Ee-Van-Vach) which means 'Lake of the Small Peak', as opposed to the nearby Llyn-Y-Fan-Fawr (Vow-oor), meaning Lake of the Big Peak!

Name: Turquoise 6th January 2012
Really love this story, but thought the ending was really sad!The man was just telling her to be quiet, because she was laughing at a funeral!Who would ever laugh at a funeral?I don\'t think she was a kind woman at all!
The only thing I didn\'t get, was if it were a myth or a legend?It doesn\'t tell you.Next time I think it should be more specific.
Name: Alison 16th January 2012
I absolutely adore reading this book, I like the part when the girl was burshing her hair.
How come the boy and girl married so young?
Name: Niamh The Awsome 17th January 2012
good story! I think this is the story ill use for my homework
Name: Fifi 22nd January 2012
I think this story started off happily but ended up quite sad and why would you laugh
at a funeral that's a bit harsh on the person that died?????????????????????????
Name: Deanna 30th January 2012
this is ok. I think you could have done better with this
Name: Cool Girl 17th February 2012
i think there is a mistake because the marrige contract said she would leave if he hit her three times without a reason. he had a reason to hit her so she shouldnt have left. its unfair on the man. does anyone else agree
Name: Niamh 17th February 2012
"You have chosen rightly," said the Father, "be kind and faithful to her and I will give her, as a dowry, as many sheep, cattle, goats, and horses, as she can count without drawing in her breath. But remember, if at any time you strike her three times without a cause, she shall return to me, with her dowry."

that is what the agreement is. the lady shouldnt have left as he had reasons to hit her
Name: Super Dino Girl 17th February 2012
I agree its harsh to laugh at a funeral so the man had a reason to nudge her she shouldn't have left
Name: ;-) 17th February 2012
you have spelt crucial names wrong
Name: Niamh 17th February 2012
moral of the story= there's never any reason to hit a lady, even if she is laughing at a funeral
thou it is very harsh to laugh at a funeral even if you never liked that person
Name: Jellj4771 7th May 2012
it is so long good job
Name: Angel 12th May 2012
Remember, stiking a person is sometimes not the best idea actually it allways isn't! Who knows they maybe laughing for a reason so you must ask before striking!
Name: Lollie 22nd July 2012
