Darkness follows as the next volume from author Jane Buckley's Stones Corner, Turmoil. In the early '70s, considered the darkest years of the Troubles in Northern Ireland, it reveals the catastrophic fall-out from the doomed Derry City Hotel meeting.
The impact of the disaster follows the lives of so many, from the wealthy, vibrant James Henderson to the love-struck factory girl Caitlin McLaughlin and her family.
The guerrilla war in the province rages as it extends to mainland Britain and the Irish Republic. Darkness takes us from the dank hellhole of the overpopulated Victorian Armagh Women's Gaol to London's lavish, opulent private clubs.
An unmerciful and harrowing tale, it endeavours to illustrate what life was like for Ulster's war-torn, sectarian communities. It captures a story of conflict, survival of the fittest, and victims who attempt to live and love against a background of chaos and carnage.
Hope is deemed lost and forgotten until the power of love, truth, and justice steps in to create light and a new beginning.
