Light A Penny Candle, is a tale of an enduring life-long friendship which asks some burning questions – a back-street abortion? A murder cover-up?

Aisling and Elizabeth have to survive DeValera’s Ireland, their raging hormones, and the struggle for independence in a world at war. Through it all, they discover that there is no right and wrong in this world, there is only what is right for those you love.
