Product description

Who can you trust in a country at war? In Dublin, 1922, working-class Anne Reilly is thrilled to win a scholarship to Eccles Street Convent School. Through her well-off new friends, she meets Peter Scanlon: a boy from a wealthy family who plays rugby for Belvedere. But civil war is brewing, and hot-headed Peter has gotten mixed up with the rebels who oppose the new Irish Free State. Then the fighting breaks out. Annie’s world is thrown into chaos. She doesn’t know which side she’s on. But she has to help Peter – doesn’t she? Even if it means lying to protect him. Even if it means putting herself in deadly danger…

  • A powerful tale of friendship, danger and divided loyalties
  • Vividly captures the turmoil of Dublin in the Irish Civil War
  • An exciting fictional overview of the war and its key events
  • By the acclaimed author of Friend or Foe? and Pawns
