Eighteen-year-old Fergus McCann is living in Northern Ireland in 1981. He and his parents are deeply involved in the Troubles because his imprisoned Republican brother decides to join other prisoners on a hunger strike. Fergus is studying for medical school, wants to be a doctor, and doesn't understand his brother's dedication to the IRA. Life becomes more complicated when he crosses from Nortern Ireland into the Irish Republic to steal peat for his uncle to sell as fuel and he discovers the perfectly preserved body of a young girl buried in the marsh 2000 years ago. This brings archaeologists to his small town and opens up new worlds for Fergus. Fascinating subject matter and a great read! Check Our Catalog
