A warm and engaging story about friendship, life in the early 20th century and how the political world affects everyone.

It’s 1913 and the time has come for Lily to leave primary school in Sligo and start her job in the Big House – Lissadell. Her employers, the Gore-Booths, are kind, but life as a young housemaid is hard: Lily misses her home and family, she works long days and has to learn how to get on with her sullen roommate, Nellie. Then Maeve, the daughter of Constance Markievicz and niece of the Gore-Booths, comes to visit. She decides to paint a portrait of Lily, and a friendship begins. In a changing Ireland, learning about each other’s lives can only be a good thing – but can a friendship between two girls from such different worlds last?

'Written with a light touch and shot through with fascinating details about the period ... this warm, touching book about friendship across the class divide truly shines.'
