Road to Ballyshannon (Abacus Books) - Softcover
December 1922: Ireland is at war with itself, friend against friend and brother against brother in the Civil War. As the lines are drawn up for the bloodiest century in Ireland's troubled history a dedicated Republican and a younger freedom fighter escape from captivity and begin the long road to freedom - to Ballyshannon in County Donegal. Between the fugitives and their Protestant hostage there grows a bond stronger than sectarian hatred, an unstable raft riding the blood-dimmed tide.
'One of the most exciting stories I have read in a long time ...the fierce loyalties leading to even fiercer violence in Ireland to this day are difficult for outsiders to understand. They become less so after reading this book.' DAILY TELEGRAPH
