The Schoolfriends (Ireland at War Book 2)

By Heather Ingman

1921. The Irish War of Independence rages on.

At the centre of this maelstrom are three former schoolfriends, Helen, Clare and Sylvia, who meet up in Dublin after an absence of seven years. 

Clare is the daughter of a British army officer, while Sylvia is married to Helen’s brother, John, who fought in the trenches in the First World War and is now involved in the Republican struggle to get the British out of Ireland. Helen, a Quaker and a pacifist, escaping an abusive relationship in England, is horrified to find herself being drawn into the violence by her brother and reluctantly falling in love with John’s Republican commander, Cathal. 

The Schoolfriends explores the tensions between three women, their love affairs, and the devastating effect of the fighting on all their lives. It is book 2 in the Ireland at War Trilogy.
