In the Troubled Ireland of the 1970s Catholic student Sarah McCarthy falls for Protestant aristocrat Lord Thomas Blake. Will their love triumph the challenges of guerilla war and illicit family secrets?
As Rory Gallagher and Phil Lynott strum their lonesome guitar chords, IRA bombs rain down across the island of Ireland and British mainland. When Irish women couldn't sit on a jury or drink in a pub, effervescent Classics student Sarah McCarthy unravels a family mystery, driving her to rally against the establishment North and South of the border for answers.
Lord Thomas Blake struggles to understand his own identity as an Anglo-Irish aristocrat, much-loathed by his Republican neighbours, as he too uncovers a hellish family past.
