Jeremiah Coffey is a twenty-seven-year-old teacher -- Catholic, conservative and plagued by guilt on account of his relationship with a beautiful bisexual called Aisling O'Connor.Aisling is everything that Jeremiah is not -- feisty and radical, angry and committed. She is a leading figure in the Irish civil rights movement and is planning to help organize a potentially explosive protest march inspired by the US black civil rights activists' Selma to Montgomery marches of three years before. The scene is set for a brutal confrontation to match the 1965 Bloody Sunday in Selma.categories: Romance, Literary, Civil Rights, LGBT, Irish Troubles, Religion, Humor.
