Woman Of State by Simon Berthon. Review

This is a fictional account of The Troubles in Northern Ireland in the early 90's and based primarily around two members of one family . Marie and Martin McCartney are brother and sister , Marie is young and in love with a friend of her brothers and after making a promise to him her life would alter for good . 
The complicated and intense history of the troubles is described well as far as any fictional account can , adding a love story to the mix humanises this time in history while showing how many grey areas of this time there was . Marie's rise from young girl to womanhood and from Ireland to the UK was fascinating to watch , the intricate plot of what was going on around her was dazzlingly brilliant , friend or foe it became hard to know who to trust , the story keeps you guessing . Fantastic!
