Scanlon's powerful, emotive novel tells the story of a family torn apart by the Irish Civil War. The novel traces the fortunes of the two main families, the Haugens and the Kennedys, as they are drawn into the conflict.

The Kennedys are nationalists and fervently support the Irish cause, while the Haugens are pro-English and support the British government. The war quickly draws in the families and their friends, pitting brother against brother and cousin against cousin.

As the conflict progresses, both sides commit atrocities, and the stakes become even higher. The Kennedys are soon targeted by the IRA and their home is bombed, killing both parents and their young children.

The Haugens are also targeted, and their home is set on fire by the English. The family barely escapes with their lives, and their home is burned to the ground.

The Kennedys and the Haugens are two; 8vo; FSA.
