Shona and Majid are living very different, but ordinary, lives on opposite sides of the globe, when both their worlds are shattered.

Majid, who witnesses the death of his fiancé, a bomb victim at an Irish/Saudi festival, is so distraught he runs from his problems - right into the arms of Islamic fundamentalists. Together his new allies and he plot to show Ireland exactly what they think of its cooperation in the US war against terror, but will Majid really get the closure he so desperately craves?

Meanwhile Irish teen Shona falls pregnant following a drunken party and stumbles through early motherhood in a haze of alcohol. An overheard conversation about her past leaves her wallowing in the self-pity of betrayal and ripe for falling into the wrong hands.

When 08/08 threatens to become Dublin's very own 9/11 will a chance meeting of the two teenagers hasten their road to self-destruction or help them rise from the ashes of the past?

Particularly when there are darker forces at work...

Paperback price includes P&P

About the Author
Carolann Copland is the founder of Carousel Creates, a writers' centre in the Dublin Mountains.

She has a Bachelor of Education in English and Drama and has been a teacher for fourteen years.

Although she writes mostly novels; Carolann loves to dabble with short stories, plays and poetry; writing between Dublin and Andalucia in the south of Spain. Discovering her love of writing a little later than others has meant that she has let it become a major part of her life and she means to enjoy every moment. She wakes up each morning on fire with a desire to write. Walking in the woods or along the beach in all weathers is where she likes to concoct her extraordinary plots, but most of her ideas come from polishing the ordinary things in life and making them shine.

From Dublin, Ireland, Carolann has also lived in the Middle East and the United Kingdom. She is married to Neil and is a mother of three children aged 10 to twenty-two.

Through mentoring writers of all ages; from all walks of life; Carolann is happiest when she is sharing her passion for writing. She is a member of two writing groups and works to promote other writing groups in Dublin.

Having spent all her life engrossed in reading stories, Carolann now looks forward to sharing her fictional world with other readers.
