Editorial Reviews

Review

'Tim Vicary writes well. He has mastered the history of the period, empathises with problem, race, and place, and strings the whole thing together in a quite creditable airport-compatible entertainment in the style of Archer, Seymour, and Uris. Whatever one thinks of such writing, those are no mean practitioners to be reminded of by a first novel. Vicary will be heard from again.'
Tim Pat Coogan, The Irish Times, 15th August 1992.

'A love story with a realistic, historical background.'
Manchester Evening News, 20th October 1993

'An exciting story of plot and counter-plot and of a doomed love. It paints a realistic picture of life in Ireland after the first war, the consequences of which we are experiencing today.'
Dillons News Sept-Oct 1992.

'The Blood Upon the Rose presents a different slant to the IRA with a heart-rending Romeo and Juliet tale spun against a background of the Troubles in 1919 Ireland. Young, beautiful and headstrong heiress Catherine O'Connell-Gort has a father in Military Intelligence, and a dashing boyfriend in the IRA. A recipe for instant, tragic, historical romance.'
City Limits August-September 1993.

'A love story within a political thriller that echoes the problems and tragedies of today.'
Huddersfield Daily Examiner, 30th October 1993.

From the Author

I'm very fond of this book. It was my first full-length novel, published in 1992 when I was teaching and learning quite a lot about the history of Ireland, and the roots of the Troubles and terrorism which were so important to British and Irish people at that time. It was published in hardback and paperback and sold quite well, and on re-reading it today I think it's as fresh and exciting as ever, and definitely deserves a new outing in the Kindle edition.

Sadly, the book's main characters face ideals and dilemmas almost identical to those which confront terrorists and security men and women today. It's the technology that changes, not the way people behave. And young love, surely, was once as beautiful and painful for our great grandparents, as it is now for us and our children.
