Special Features:

Jack Flynn is a farmer, strong and aggressive, proudly independent. But, on his lonely smallholding in Tipperary in the new Republic of Ireland, he is slowly dying of tuberculosis. Jack engages the services of the local matchmaker, and purchases a young wife who can bear him sons to inherit his land. His choice, Caitlin Spillane, is less than half his age, attractive and intelligent, and resents bitterly the obedience forced upon her. When Donal Kelly, a young firebrand and IRA activist, arrives in the village, he is determined to liberate Caitlin from her husband – by any means. Only With Blood is a stirring novel set against the struggle for the heart of Ireland during the Second World War, when the IRA notoriously sought assistance from the Nazis, and Éamon de Valera, the Irish Taoiseach, opposed their efforts in every way possible in order to preserve peace and his country’s neutrality
