Lives and hearts turned upside down....   This is Northern Ireland in the 1980s, and the Troubles are tearing apart the country. Neighbour turns on neighbour as the Catholic/Protestant divide rages on. In Maze Prison, a group of men start a hunger strike, wanting to be recognised as political prisoners, while on the outside, personal lives are also caught up in the turmoil....  When Bronwyn and Danny married, she had high hopes for their future. Now they barely speak, and Danny keeps such strange hours. When Bronwyn learns Danny is involved in a shooting, she calls the police, and he's sent off to the Maze, where he joins the hunger strikes.  Meanwhile Rose James is not a pretty girl, nor is she strong. But she's risking everything to date Connor Dean, a Protestant. When Connor is shot, Rose's world threatens to tear apart. With nowhere to go, she moves in with Connor's mother, Mary, a formidable woman who also lost Connor's father to the Troubles. But it's not long before Mary sets out to get rid of Rose, travelling to the Maze to enlist Danny's help....  Set against the backdrop of the Troubles, The Hunger Within is rich with history, pathos and the unique pride that comes with surviving in a dark and hostile time.

Author Bio: J.M. Hewitt

Author Bio: J.M. Hewitt

J.M. Hewitt writes crime fiction and is the author of three previous crime fiction novels, and has been published in two short story publications. Her work usually incorporates twentieth and twenty-first century events and far flung locations, and her novels explore the darker side of human behavior. In contrast to the sometimes dark content of her books, she lives in a seaside town in Suffolk, England, with her dog, Marley. When she was ten years old she’d read all the books she owned, all those on her mother’s bookcase and everything the library had to offer. She decided the only course of action to take was to write her own stories. Thirty years later, she is still writing them.
