The Hunger Within [electronic resource]

Hewitt, J.M.2020
Lives and hearts turned upside down … This is Northern Ireland in the 1980s, and the Troubles are tearing apart the country. Neighbour turns on neighbour as the Catholic/Protestant divide rages on. In Maze Prison, a group of men start a hunger strike, wanting to be recognised as political prisoners, while on the outside, personal lives are also caught up in the turmoil …Bronwyn and Danny are married but they barely speak. When Bronwyn learns Danny is involved in a shooting, she calls the police and he's sent off to the Maze.Meanwhile Rose James is risking everything to date Connor Dean, a Protestant. When Connor is shot, Rose’s world threatens to tear apart. With nowhere to go, she moves in with Connor’s mother, Mary, a formidable woman who also lost Connor’s father to the Troubles. But it's not long before Mary sets out to get rid of Rose, travelling to the Maze to enlist Danny’s help …Set against the backdrop of the Troubles, The Hunger Within is rich with history, pathos and the unique pride that comes with surviving in a dark and hostile time.
