Product Description


poignant … absorbing

(The Swallows Nest)

the impressive achievement of this historical novel is to present complex events lucidly and to convey their intensity. Readers of eleven upwards will be absorbed by the dramatic events which impact upon the lives of the four main characters

(School Librarian Magazine)

the reality of violence and its aftermath is well done

(Historical Novels Review)

would make a very good introduction to the history of the Northern Ireland conflict for children in their early teens

(Historical Novels Review)

should be compulsory reading for every Irish young person


captures a volatile Belfast so well


couldn’t put the book down


brings the past to life in a very readable, engaging way


while readers are familiar with wars that wrack distant parts of the world, this accurate depiction of violence in a familiar and seemingly benign area will surprise and educate many―a worthy accomplishment

(Kirkus Reviews)

just beautiful writing

(Sunday Independent)

ideal for age ten and up

(Sunday Independent)

without glossing over violence or partisan attitudes, the book delineates the conflict in an age-appropriate manner

(Children’s Books Ireland Recommended Reads Guide 2013)

thoroughly-researched historical fiction


Gallagher constructs a good tale, and doesn't shy away from tragedy


10 out of 10 … will never want to put it down ... a real page-turner


Brian Gallagher makes you feel as if you are really there
