Rain on the Wind
The classic, dramatic story of the constant struggle of the people of a fishing community in the West of Ireland - a struggle with the sea, with poverty and with the political conservatism of post-independent Ireland. One of Macken's most powerful and best-loved novels. 'Full of dramatic and racy incident.' - The Guardian
