Review by: Wendy Bertsch on April 16, 2012 :
Richard Sutton’s ability to paint a rich picture of the Irish countryside and to portray a warm and loving Irish family continues undiminished in this sequel to The Red Gate.

Even in the countryside, the O’Deirgs are unable to avoid involvement in the violence of Ireland’s fight for independence, and the sudden arrival of their unknown American cousins doesn’t make it easier. But through it all, their mysterious secret gives them hope.

The rather remarkable mystical connection of the O’Deirg women is mirrored in the American aboriginal background of their new family connection. Can they keep their secret from her? Should they?
