Rainbows of the Moon

A novel by

Two teenagers are thrown together in violent circumstances in a desolate and dangerous part of the Irish border. In the dramatic events that follow, age-old rivalries come to the surface, stirring strong feelings and emotions and giving readers an insight into their vastly different lives and loyalties. The conflict between the two takes place against the wider conflict of the 'troubles' in Northern Ireland, as the SAS and the IRA pit their wits against each other in a battle for a deadly secret, a secret which, unknown to the two young people, has come into their possession. 'The importance of this book lies in its ability to bring both the religious and the military war home in a non-violent way. Creates an enthralling atmosphere in which tragedy is constantly anticipated'.CLODAGH CORCORAN, IRISH TIMES 'By far the best book for teenagers on the 'troubles' that I have read'.MARGARET PENDER, N.I.
