From Library Journal:

McCafferty is a journalist from Northern Ireland who writes for the Irish Times and at all times makes clear her nationalist and feminist perspectives. Her prose is spartan and insightful, and her earlier works have been widely praised. In this book, McCafferty chronicles the life of Peggy Deery from the first civil rights marches in Ulster to Deery's death in 1988. Deery's husband died of cancer, and her son was a member of the IRA and blew himself up with a bomb. The Catholic Church, the police, and the IRA all used her son's funeral to make statements about their positions. Joining Sally Belfrage's Living in War: A Belfast Year ( LJ 8/87), McCafferty's book reveals the flesh-and-blood Ulster. A revealing and moving portrait.
