It is the late 1800s, and young Matt lives in the Irish countryside, raised by his beloved Aunt Nora and Uncle Patsy. But when Nora tragically drowns, both Matt and Patsy are mysteriously moved from their humble cottage to the manor house. There, Matt is spoiled by "Aunt Brid" until he's sent off to school. Although grateful for his new opportunities, not knowing who his mother and father are still bothers him. Matt begins his journey to the truth about his parentage, making friends and finding the woman he wants to marry along the way. As the Irish rebel against their wealthy English landlords, Matt, too, finds himself involved in politics. Full of details about everyday life during a turbulent period of Irish history, Hardy's latest work of historical fiction portrays a period where things aren't always what they seem. --Booklist, 15th May 2009
