The Power of Duty: War and Peace and the Davies sisters of Wales

A moving story of love and courage. The shy and wealthy Davies sisters of Llandinam believed in the power of beauty. They poured their fortunes into charity and music. They saw service in the First World War in France. They created a magical art collection, their enduring gift of sunlight, to the people of Wales.
