Castle Deverill, nestled in the rolling Irish hills, is home to flame-haired Kitty Deverill. Her best friend is Bridie Doyle, the daughter of the castle's cook. Jack O'Leary, the vet's son, is always reminding Kitty that she isn't fully Irish; Bridie is jealous of Kitty's wealth and glamour. When the Irish revolt begins Jack enlists to fight, and Kitty throws herself into the cause for Irish liberty. Their lives are wrenched apart by betrayal, and when Castle Deverill comes under attack the only home Kitty has ever known is threatened.

Starts off very slow and though the pacing eventually picks up it drifts into soap opera territory. However, it may appeal to readers who like dramatic family sagas, tensions between "upstairs" and "downstairs", and are able to accept some plot twists that would be implausible in real life.

Great historical fiction. Hooked on the story, currently reading Daughters of Ireland, book 2 in the series.
