Both Your Houses

A novel by

Belfast in the 1960s - city of raids and riots, where a daily symphony of hate echoes the violence of exploding bombs, the tearing up of floorboards, the smashing down of doors and the naked passions of angry mobs.

Moody, a young British soldier and his Catholic sweetheart, Aileen, seize happiness while they can. Their love becomes the deadly rift between father and daughter and other members of the family and the impossible conflict that Moody faces between protecting his new relatives or that of his mates in the army. There is no simple solution as they become targets for uncontrollable terror.

A romantic story laced with violence, retribution and murder.
