Another complete-in-itself story in the spellbinding ‘Hamilton’ saga - It is 1942, and the Second World War has been going on for three wearying years. Work is hard in the Ulster mills in Northern Ireland where Alex Hamilton struggles to keep overworked machines going, just as his wife Emily tries to provide food and comfort not only for their own children, but for the many young American soldiers stationed nearby. Bad news comes daily, but there is still a welcome for friends and strangers, and moments of happiness come at even the darkest of times.

About the Author:

Anne Doughty was born in Armagh but spent many years in England before returning to live in Belfast. She is the author of A Few Late Roses (longlisted for the Irish Times literature prize), Stranger in the Place and Summer of the Hawthorn and, with Seven House, On a Clear Day and Beyond the Green Hills.

Review:

Emily and Alex Hamilton, both orphaned at an early age, have made a good life for themselves and their four children at Rathdrum House. Each capably serves the war effort as Johnny joins his older sister Lizzie in the military, Cathy teaches, and Jane nurses. Alex supervises four textile mills dedicated to war production, and Emily mothers the homesick young American troops preparing for D-Day. Trouble at the mills combines with Alex's sudden longing for the truth about his personal history to create riveting subplots. Doughty invests the newest Hamilton family saga with a wealth of colorful historical detail about domestic life during World War II in Ulster, Northern Ireland, and the practicalities of wartime rationing, while Emily's and Alex's introspective moments invoke reader admiration as they make a conscious decision to persevere in the face of crushing loss. Charmingly descriptive passages recount the passing of the seasons and bring Ireland's role in ending Hitler's tyranny to vivid, thought-provoking life. --Booklist, 15th April 2010
