Herself Alone in Orange Rain

AVAILABLE NOW: Published by Cinnamon Press

Part two of Tracey's Celtic Colours trilogy

Kaylynne Ryan is a promising art student, used to fighting for her place in a world of men but when a forgotten friend turns up she realises there is more than her own freedom at stake.

Learning the truth about her Irish heritage, her grandfather who fought all his life for Ireland’s independence, her parents who gave their lives for the same cause, she finds herself drawn into the dangerous world of the Provisional IRA with its bombing campaigns, bloody violence, hunger strikes and patriotic sacrifice. She didn’t look for the Troubles but they found her and now, whatever the cost, she must join the cause to help rid the Six Counties of the Brits.

Herself Alone in Orange Rain tells the story of one young woman’s fight for freedom and independence, for her homeland and herself.

Herself Alone in Orange Rain was released by Cinnamon Press in Autumn 2017.

Herself Alone in Orange Rain also formed the basis for and creative componant of Tracey's creative writing PhD thesis Troubles Women: Using Creative Writing Practice to Challenge Misrepresentations of IRA Women in Troubles Fiction. She completed her practice-led research project in October 2016 and was awarded her creative writing doctorate in early 2017.
