The Iron Way
Conor came at sunset, a black shape looming in the cottage doorway . . .
And for Jem and Kate, nothing is ever the same again. Conor changes their lives - just as the railway he is helping to build will change the country.
Jem and Kate see a chance of escaping from miserable poverty and finding happiness. But not everyone welcomes change. Although the railway brings excitement and opportunity, it brings conflict too. The past and the future meet head-on, and Jem and Kate are caught in the middle.
What will happen when the violence explodes?
