"Some things are worth dying for." It is 1766. Nan Scully is surrounded by obscene poverty, worsened by the landowners' heartless eviction of family after family. Realizing secret agrarian rebels are taking a stand, Nan is hell-bent on doing her bit. Little does she know her greatest enemy is her father, Sir Richard Lynche. When Alistair Moore, local priest and boyhood friend of Sir Richard, speaks out against the gentry's oppression, he becomes their prime target in the battle to crush the rebels. Yet, his own demons might do him in first. Unbeknownst to either, Nan and Alistair's fates become entwined on a treacherous road leading directly to the gallows. Harps Upon the Willows is based on actual incidents that rocked 18th century Tipperary.
