"This novel, first published in 1946, was a young writer's first novel and an attempt to deal with the lives, as he saw and thought about them, of some young people in the North of Ireland.
Two brothers and a girl are the central figures, and their story moves against a background darkened by the shadow that fell on Europe in the 1940's. The action moves from a small provincial town, with crowded days and black-out nights, through the Irish midlands to the bare rocky Rosses of Donegal. There may have been darker things than the blackouts in the lives then of the young people on the nationalist side of the fence, and the grievances and misgovernment of that time.
