The collection of stories in the book, written by Angela Hennessy, recounts the story of Ireland's revolutionary era from the perspective of 17 ordinary women in rural Ireland who took part in the independence movement. Most of the women featured in the book were members of Cumann na mBan and all were attached to the East Limerick Brigade of Volunteers. They were involved in dispatch-carrying, intelligence-gathering, scouting, shielding, guiding, transporting arms and ammunition, caring for the wounded, providing food and shelter. Raids, harassment, loss of employment, imprisonment and hunger strike all feature among the experiences of the women in the stories.
