An exploration of friendship and adventure. An unforgettable coming-of-age story of small-town adolescence and universal experience.

Thirteen-year-old Conor Cleary lives with his mother in a cottage in County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland. With little contact with the outside world and nothing much to do, life is uneventful. Until one day the United States Army are posted in Fermanagh on their way to fight in mainland Europe during the Second World War, and Conor’s life changes forever.
