The story is set during the wars in Ireland of the Elizabethan period. TCD Library holds three editions of this title, two being illustrated: the first, of 1896, the present work, with a frontispiece by O'Hea, the third, of 1921, with a frontispiece by Patrick Tuohy (qv).
Note on artwork:
A young man closely accompanies a young woman as they walk along a reedy river bank. They are in Elizabethan costume and are placed the centre of the composition. Being seen from a low point-of-view, they are silhouetted against the sky. Behind them, on each side in the middle-ground, are clumps of trees and some buildings with a tall tower can be seen in the distance.
