US Kirkus Review » Sadie Jackson and Kevin McCoy, the feisty street scrappers of The Twelfth Day of July (1972), meet three years later and - inevitably - fall in love. But for a Protestant girl and a Catholic boy keeping company in working-class Belfast means that she is harassed by family and neighbors and sacked from her job, he is beaten up as a traitor by former friends, and - the final blow that impels Kevin to leave the country - the retired teacher who befriends and harbors them is killed by a bomb thrown into his house. The ending - Kevin off for England, Sadie appearing on the last page announcing that she's going too - is perhaps a cop-out but realistic options are limited. In any case Lingard gives us a clear view from the troubled streets and kitchens on both sides of the barricades, and her evident familiarity with the timely scene gives a firm vitality to this variation on an old story. (Kirkus Reviews)
