Book Details

From the Publisher
In the winter of 1920 the War of Independence is raging in Ireland, and Dublin is a city in terror. This book tells the story of Sarah and her family who, unknown to Sarah, are involved in spying activities for Michael Collins during the Irish Civil War. Sarah, a feisty 11-year-old, cannot understand why her family is so neutral toward the war and why everybody is so secretive. A strong patriot, Sarah wants to help her country in any way she can, but she ends up more involved than she ever imagined and carries information that could cost her her life. This riveting, thrill-a-minute story brings to life Irish history, and the legendary spy gang of Michael Collins, for young readers.
