Nine years ago, the bloody conflict in Northern Ireland tore apart two young lovers ... Now, in 1983, Davy McCutcheon and Fiona Kavanagh find themselves worlds apart. Davy, once a bomb-maker for the Provisional IRA, is serving a twenty-five-year sentence in a British prison. Having seen enough of death and violence, he wants nothing more to do with the struggle that cost him his freedom and his love. But old loyalties die hard and, despite himself, Davy is drawn into a dangerous conspiracy on behalf of his fellow Provos. Meanwhile, Fiona has forged a new life for herself in Vancouver, British Columbia, far away from the war-torn streets of Belfast.

Heart rending story of 'the troubles' in Northern Ireland in the 1980's. Third in a trilogy, but it stands on its own very well.

An allegory of almost great proportions. Patrick Taylor write brilliant descriptive prose - when MacCutcheon's ex-girlfriend's Vancouver surroundings are described the reader really understands what is going on. Clearly Northern Ireland was not a pleasant place to be during the "Troubles" I strongly recommend this book - I feel there is an important lesson for us all in this tale!
