As the Easter Rebellion looms, tension mounts in the rain-soaked streets of Dublin.
Tension is also ratcheting up at home. Pat Dumay is a Catholic and an Irish patriot. His relentlessly pious mother pursues her own private war with his stepfather, a man sunk in religious speculation and drink.
Meanwhile Pat's Protestant soldier cousin, Andrew Chase-White, puzzles out his complex emotions about Ireland and the girl he loves.
Weaving between them moves Millie Kinnard: fast, feminist, and only just respectable.
