It was also made into a fine film called "The Dawning", with Anthony Hopkins, Trevor Howard, Jean Simmons & Rebecca Pidgeon (not a bad cast for a low-budget Arthouse film!)

In spite of that, The story takes place in or around Dublin during a rather chaotic point in history. not only was there a war in europe there was also unrest in Ireland and strong resentment for being involved. I dont want to give too much away or give the wrong information because, like i said, i read it in high school, 2001. Just give it a try. very good lessons to be learned from this one. a real treasure for any young adult.
I've just discovered this writer, and it's the kind of discovery that makes me want to read everything she's written. (Just for the record: the review lists "Kindle Edition", but what I bought and read was a used paperback).
