'This fantastically written book will hook you from the start... this is historical fiction at its best.'  The Guardian 

1689. Derry. The city’s largely Protestant inhabitants resist all attempts by the Catholic King James’s men to storm their gates. Outside, the Jacobite soldiers resolve to starve the populace into submission ...

Inside the city, the Sherrard family are among those divided on whether to risk the lives of their loved ones or surrender the city. Tensions run high and the leaders argue. Mr Sherrard, the father of Robert and Daniel, starts to waver, angering his oldest son, Robert, who was among the 13 boys who closed the city gates in the face of the advancing Catholic army. Meanwhile Daniel, the youngest Sherrard boy, also steps up to protect Derry.

As the siege lengthens and the two sides clash in battle, the heavy price of defying the Catholic king becomes clear. People are starving, injured and diseased. Bombardment rains down on the city. But the Derry people remain defiant. There will be 'no surrender'.

'This fantastically written book will hook you from the start... this is historical fiction at its best.'  The Guardian
