The Twelfth Day of July
by Joan Lingard
A novel which is part of a series about a young Belfast couple who try to make a new life for themselves. In this book Kevin and his Catholic friends go out to daub slogans in a Protestant territory - a dangerous activity but an event which leads him to meet Sadie who changes his life.
Sadie is Protestant, Kevin is Catholic - and on the tense streets of Belfast their lives collide. It starts with a dare - kids fooling around - but soon becomes something dangerous. Getting to know Sadie Jackson will change Kevin's life forever. But will the world around them change too? The first of Joan Lingard's ground-breaking Kevin and Sadie books.
