 About the Book 

A vast and sweeping saga telling the story of two families, the Hennessys and the Codys who grew up and intertwined In West Cork, Ireland, during the troubled years of the Irish War of Independence and Civil War, 1919-1923. The story focuses on the enduring passion between Sonny Hennessy, a poor farm boy who becomes a man of war, and Anna Cody, the beautiful and self-willed daughter of a better off family, while at the same time describing in minute and vivid detail an entire country torn apart by conflict and change. Here appears an unforgettable cast of characters: the blood-dreading humanist Doctor James Baldwin, the tragic Michael Collins, the Jesuitical de Valera, the wily Lloyd George, the voluptuous Eleanore Eustace and the swashbuckling Tom Barry.
