From the Inside Flap
It is November, 1979. Kathleen's son Sean has just been transferred to Belfast's most notorious prison - Long Kesh, recently renamed the Maze. Kathleen knows that he will join the other prisoners on their non-cooperation protest, known as the Blanket. Rumours of a hunger strike are beginning to circulate.
John Dunn has finished twenty years in the British Army. After three tours of Belfast, he's found a girl and a house and a job as a prison guard.
In the weeks before Christmas, both Kathleen and John will find themselves in impossible situations. Both will have to find a way to survive when everything they love is in danger of being destroyed.
THIS HUMAN SEASON is set during one of the most contentious and morally complex periods of recent British history. Compassionate and fearless, it confirms an exceptional new literary talent. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
