What a nice surprise! This is a real gem performed by the awesome Simon Vance. It opens in the WWI battle fields of France, giving the reader a detailed picture of how war shapes the thinking of its young soldiers. From there, it goes to another battlefield, those of Ireland where British troops tried to rule and the militant IRA opposed them -- at the expense of many innocents.
One of those innocents - who abhors the IRA for the deaths of her family and one of the war scarred soldiers -- who abhors the Brits for their merciless treatment of both soldiers and civilians - meet and eventually fall in love. You will be engaged in the story of the conflict they face and how the love-hate relationships they have with each other and the politics of the time affect them.
This is a good listen. Historical fiction, along with warring and romancing and reconciling by all concerned! The historical notes at the conclusion are worth a listen too!
