The Irish Boer Woman is the second volume of the Brigid O'Meara trilogy (the first part was England Wants Your Gold printed in 2015) that follows the life of an adventurous young Irish woman who is drawn into the intrigues and violence of the Jameson Raid of 1895, and later incarcerated in a British concentration camp during the Anglo Boer War for assisting active Boer commandos. As an Irish nationalist, Brigid finds herself in the midst of a clash of cultures and worldviews. She is drawn into the conflict of the Anglo Boer War by identifying and entering the struggle of the Boers of the Transvaal to retain their independence, putting her into direct conflict with British authorities representing an expanding global empire. Adding to her emotional turmoil is her romantic involvement with a British Uitlander, who is facing charges of high treason by the Transvaal Boer Government. Through the characters, the reader enters the harrowing realities of a war in which the two Boer Republics mobilized every man between 16 and 60 with no uniform, no money and no formal training to take on the might of the British Empire.
