Relationships fracture when two families find themselves caught up in the Irish Troubles
The Green family move to Kilkenny from England in 1969, at the beginning of the conflict in Northern Ireland. They rent a farmhouse on the outskirts of town, and make friends with the O’Connor family next door.
Not every member of the family adapts easily to their new life, and their differing approaches lead to misunderstandings and friction. Despite this, the bonds between the family members deepen with time.
Perturbed by the worsening violence in the North threatening to invade their lives, the children make a pact never to let the troubles come between them.
But promises can be broken, with tragic consequences for everyone.
If you like family sagas in an authentic Irish setting, Rebel Green will thrill and move you in equal measure.
