'A conjuror with words ... fascinating.' Nanette Newman, Sunday Express. 'Reads like a blockbuster with a mesage. Delaney's images are powerful.' Times Literary Supplement. 'A cleverly plotted epic ... keeps the reader hanging on until the very last page for the final twist.' Irish Post. 'The suspense is artfully maintained.' Sunday Times

From the Back Cover:

1925, a few short years only after the civil war that had torn Ireland apart and Ellen Morris, well educated and beautiful, comes to teach at the small village school in Deanstown where every soul had gone against the Treaty that had split the country in two. The village had its own codes, its fixed beliefs and Ellen soon found herself at odds with both. She also found herself in love, with Thomas Kane, a hero of The Troubles and the head of the two-teacher school…

Frank Delaney writes an epic of his homeland, charged with both love and frustration, that grips the listener as only the tale of a true storyteller can.
