Fondly remembered for her novels based in 1970s Northern Ireland, it’s somewhat prophetic that author Joan Lingard passed away on the date that gave a title to the first in her much-loved and widely read Kevin and Sadie series.

And her novels, starting with The Twelfth Day Of July and followed by Beyond The Barricades and three more, still hold a special place in the hearts of both those who read them on first release over half a century ago and those who still return to them today.
