No Hero’s Welcome is a superbly told story of an Irish family’s struggles during and after World War One. Jeffrey Walker’s brilliant characters reflect the intense emotions of this divided country: Eda, the mother who strives to hold her family together; Sean, the rebel who joins the IRA; Francis, crippled by war and a staunch supporter of the crown; Molly, shattered by love; Peter who provides quiet strength to the cause he believes in and the woman he loves; and Brendan, the child who observes ...more

This story is a compelling look at how various family members of an Irish family deal with life in Post-WWI Ireland. The characters must deal with the turmoil of the Irish Civil War, choose their own involvement in it, and deal with everything it takes to survive. The author does a wonderful job of knitting together the three books in this series. His faithful readers will find the conclusion quite satisfying.
