Publisher Comments:

A beautiful and elegaic novel of World War I encompasses the complexities of Irish involvement in the war, a divided family, and a moving love story

Dublin, 1914. As Ireland stands on the brink of political crisis, Europe plunges headlong into war. Among the thousands of Irishmen who volunteer to fight for the British Army is Stephen Ryan, a gifted young mathematics scholar whose working class background has marked him out as a misfit among his wealthy fellow students. Sent to fight in Turkey, his romantic notions of war are soon shattered, and he is unaware of the scale of the growing unrest back home in Ireland. When he returns home in 1916 he finds Dublin in the grip of rebellion and his own brother fighting for the rebels. Everything is utterly changed, and in a world gone mad his only hope is his growing friendship with the brilliant and enigmatic Lillian Bryce. The first entry in this poignant, deeply moving trilogy is a tribute to the durability of the human soul.
