Joan Lingard

Into Exile
  • Into Exile

  • The third of Joan Lingard's ground-breaking Kevin and Sadie books.
    Protestant Sadie and Catholic Kevin have married and "escaped" to London - but will they ever really be free of Belfast and its troubles? In this third book about Sadie and Kevin, Joan Lingard has added an understanding of the strains of young marriage to the sombre representation of life in Belfast.

Joan Lingard was born in Edinburgh and grew up in Belfast where she lived until she was eighteen. She is particularly well-known for her quintet of young adult titles about Kevin and Sadie and their love across the religious divide during the Troubles in Northern Ireland. The series begins with THE TWELFTH DAY OF JULY. In 1998 Joan was awarded an MBE for distinguished service to children's literature. She lives in Edinburgh and is married, with three children and five grandchildren.
