Reapers of Justice
by Anne Frehill
About the Book
Sarah Murphy, a young schoolmistress is not who she claims to be. Underneath the calm mask of the earnest spinster struggling to enable her pupils to escape from the gnawing poverty of their parents, lies a whirlpool of uncertainties. Reared by her grandmother, since childhood she has agonized over the untimely death of her mother and abandonment by her father. In her short life she has known absence, rejection, and loneliness leading to a hasty and clandestine marriage with an IRA commander, who is on the run for the murder of RIC officers.
The local village of Somerset is beset by rumour and counter rumour as a lethal style of guerrilla warfare is waged against the forces of the British Crown. Time spent with Sean is precious as he moves under the cover of darkness from one “safe house” to another.
Yet, she doesn`t know about the innate corruption of human nature. She only knows that she must stay one step ahead of informers and spies. In her efforts to stay alive she quickly learns that all rules of behaviour must be thrown to the four winds.

Meet the Author
Anne`s earliest memories are of storybooks and her delight in them. She stacked them in boxes and in presses, earning her the name “ bookworm” with her family, while they acted as a spur to make her an able reader before starting school. Following a degree in social science, she worked as a social worker for years. However, a serious accident forced her to change careers and she studied history and folklore while being a carer to her Dad.
Anne enjoys writing fiction and non-fiction and has contributed to “Sunday Miscellany -RTE Radio. She is passionate about animal welfare and care of the earth. Anne has independently published two books, "Reapers of Justice" and "When Silence Hurts"
