Artists Eva and Letitia Hamilton and their four sisters lived through the transition from British rule to a newly independent Ireland. They had to adapt to a conservative and patriarchal society in which roles for women were clearly defined. Navigating this environment required compromise and determination. This book book narrates how they made that journey.

Stephen Odlum holds an MPhil. in the History of Irish Art from Trinity College, Dublin, writing his dissertation on the life and works of Letitia Hamilton.
