White Leaves of Peace

Due for release by Cinnamon Press 26th April 2019

Part three of Tracey's Celtic Colours trilogy

When the big men get around the table on Good Friday of 1998 and sign up to peace in Northern Ireland nine year old Cian Duffy’s story should have ended. Instead it is the beginning of a decade of Troubles for him. Haunted by his mother’s IRA past and chased by present day violence sectarianism, Cian ends up being forced to flee peace-torn Belfast. Facing a life in exile, he reconciles himself to the past and makes a new life for himself, somewhere he feels he belongs. Then Britain votes for Brexit; the old adage of England’s difficulty being Ireland’s opportunity is tabled yet again and Cian has to confront the past and the future.

White Leaves of Peace is a stark reminder that ending a war takes more than the signing of a treaty. Peace is hard won. You have to fight for it.

White Leaves of Peace was released by Cinnamon Press in Easter 2019.

From troubled Northern Ireland to the sun-baked roads of outback Australia White Leaves of Peace is a novel of youthful identities, the identities of individuals and the identities of nations. A fine-drawn novel of person and place.
