Review:

'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:

Ellen Morris is confident, beautiful, bright and educated. Early in 1925, she accepts a teaching post in a rural, misty village. There the young city girl meets two men who will radically transform her. One is the handsome and respected Thomas Kane, a former gunman hero of The Troubles; the other a poor and brutal cottage-dweller, a shadowy and menacing presence.

Ellen soon finds out that she must conform to the traditions of the local community and toe the rural Irish line, live by the local codes. Beset by violence and turbulent emotion, Ellen rejects the hypocrisy of her religion and plunges into natural instinct, avenging what she sees as the sins of Mother Ireland and Holy Mother Church.

Set in the vicious and incestuous aftermath of the Irish Civil War, this dramatic and compelling story lays bare the foundations for today’s headlines from Ireland.

“A conjuror with words ... fascinating.”
NANETTE NEWMAN, 'Sunday Express'
