Product description

Derry, 1689. A small walled city up north. A small city that’s about to become the crux of a war between three mighty kings. The nightmare begins on the day an anonymous letter is read out: a terrifying letter that says every last Protestant man, woman and child is to be murdered. Panic takes hold. The Catholic army is galloping in. Daniel and Robert, two teenage brothers, rush to close the city gates – in the nick of time. Now the siege has begun. Bombs rain down. Behind the walls, people are trapped; injured, dying, starving. Soon they’re also fighting each other. But there’s no going back…

  • A superbly gripping and vivid fictional tale of the Derry siege
  • By the acclaimed author of City of Fate and Kings of the Boyne
  • Effortlessly blends historical facts with raw human emotions
  • Ideal for fans of My Story, Siobhan Dowd and Theresa Breslin

“A very strong story … a deeply thought provoking book that works at many levels, not least as a well-researched and written historical novel … not a light read but it is a very memorable one.” School Librarian

“Highlights how far humanity can fall and, ultimately, how far it can soar in the face of adversity.” Children’s Books Ireland Recommended Reading Guide
