Summary It's 1921. Ireland has been at war with Britain for two years. When Polly's brother Leo returns from war, it's like he's turned into a different person. After he turns violent, Polly runs away to Helen's Hope hostel in Belfast, where Catholic and Protestant girls live and work together while around them Ireland is at war with itself. But some people hate Helen's Hope because of what it stands for. How can a few girls stand up to hatred -- when some of it comes from within their own walls? And when the hostel is violently attacked, how can Polly keep hope alive?
