Write Review

Rated 0

Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

A heart-rending tale of harship in pre-war Belfast.

Belfast, 1907. Ignoring her family's outrage, Maggie Pierce has left her comfortable home and married her Catholic sweetheart, Paul Mason. Together they set up home in the Falls Road, but Maggie finds it difficult to settle until she finds an ally in the form of Paul's landlady, Mollie Grahame.

The birth of baby Sarah cements the young couple's happiness, but a second pregnancy brings a double tragedy and soon Maggie finds herself penniless and alone, struggling to survive in a harsh and uncaring world.

A moving saga of extraordinary things that happen to ordinary people, TIES OF LOVE AND HATE presents a gritty and vivid portrayal of a time and place, populated by characters as endearing as they are realistic.
