Plot Summary
In the summer of 1920, teenage orphan Nancy lives with her grandfather and aunt in southern Ireland.| Naive and romantic, Nancy finds a stranger holed up in her beach hut. She trusts the mysterious man, Cassius, despite the fact that he has a gun. She cares for him enough to relay a message to Dublin on his behalf.| After she communicates Cassius's message, twelve British officers are gunned down. And Nancy is terrified by the power of the stranger's words. She suspects he might be a spy. Though alarmed by the shooting, Nancy is more captivated by Cassius than ever and even warns him when English soldiers comb the beach, heading for his hideout.| While the adolescent Nancy struggles to make sense of her changing emotions, she also has to stay out of danger -- a balancing act that forces her to grow up fast.
