AUGUST was always a wicked month during the Troubles, not least in 1979 when the atrocities of Mullaghmore and Narrowwater took place.
Timothy Knatchbull, a survivor of Mullaghmore, has written a compelling and moving account of that atrocity and its impact. It's not easy reading, but it is one of the most penetrating and humane books to have emerged from the Troubles.
At times it is a painful book to read, and must have been even more painful to write.
