Product description

The year is 1914 and Amelia Pim will soon be thirteen. Rumours of war and rebellion are flying. Dublin is holding its breath. But all that matters to Amelia is what she’ll wear to her birthday party, and how she can be the envy of all her friends. Amelia’s family live in a grand house full of servants. They are Quakers, with a pacifist faith. Surely the unrest won’t touch Amelia’s comfortable life? But the First World War is just on the horizon, and nobody will escape unscathed…

  • Two classic tales of war and change by a major novelist
  • Siobhán Parkinson was Laureate na nÓg from 2010-2012
  • Her books include The Moon King and Sisters… No Way!
  • Sisters… No Way! was the Bisto Book of the Year in 1997

“A very substantial novel set in the Dublin south of 1914, encompassing the place of the Quakers in the society of the time, the imminence of war, the manner in which people can be dropped when their fortunes diminish, and the resoluteness of the main character, young Amelia Pim, in the face of adversity.” Sunday Press
