Product Description

* Publishing 5th March 2020 *

Ireland is at war, communities torn apart by bitter hatred – and now a hard border. But brave young women stand up for hope.

It is 1921. Ireland has been at war with Britain for two years.

Communities are torn apart by bitter hatred – and now a hard border.

Helen’s Hope in Belfast is a hostel for girls, a feminist and non-sectarian space. Stella refuses to use the work of her girls to make political symbols, but her resistance leads eventually to a violent attack on the hostel.

Nothing could be more apposite at this moment than a novel about how hard borders and political division drive wedges into the hearts of communities.

 

Praise for Hope Against Hope:

“I devoured this book in one furious reading session. Funny, moving and full of wisdom, Hope Against Hope shows Sheena Wilkinson is a writer at the top of her game.” – Jan Carson, winner of the EU Prize for Literature 2019
