This explosive novel tells the troubling story of a young Catholic boy who is brutalised by his father, who wants his son to do his bidding in an attempt to bring about a United Ireland.

The boy is forced against his will to carry out attacks on British soldiers and installations on behalf of the I.R.A. Much to the father’s chagrin, his controlling plans start to go wrong when his son falls in love with a Protestant girl. But far worse than her religion, she is from England and is the daughter of the leader of the British Forces in Northern Ireland.

The story involves a classic journey of love against all hope, and results in the death of a major player. The Cause Was the Trouble is an unforgettable tale of love and war set on a world stage.
