Product description

Ava isn’t happy when her mum drags her from America to Dublin after a messy divorce. But when she finds a sliver of emerald and a bundle of old letters in the attic, Ava is plunged into a historical mystery. How were the missing crown jewels of Tsarist Russia linked to Ireland’s bloody civil war in 1922? Who was young medical student Molly, who wrote the letters? Why did her brother Jack the Cat smuggle the jewels? Did her football-mad cousin Dan survive his job running messages through the crossfire? Through Molly’s eyes, Ava learns about the death of Michael Collins, deadly ambushes in Kerry and the tragic fate of former comrades….

  • A thrilling fictional diary from a best-loved series
  • Brings a key period in Irish history to gripping life
  • Vivid first-person account full of twists and turns
  • Essential Irish history made relevant and exciting
