THE 10 BEST NOVELS SINCE THE TURN OF THE CENTURY" — Comhar
Kerry, 1923, as civil war rages all around them captain Mat Daly is ordered to present himself in Seanabhaile within five days with a despatch box... and a prisoner.
In the tradition of Dr Zhivago, Gone with the Wind agus For Whom the Bell Tolls Seán Mac Mathúna tells the story of Mat Daly, a man who has never been with a woman; of Cáit Bric, a young woman who has spent her life in slavery; and of Breen, a handsome young man who has his own cross to carry through the snowbound mountains of Kerry, as the civil war rages all around them.
