A friend of the new boys’ maid Roan, James is both drawn to and suspicious of the roguish and charming Dandy…
“The young man was as handsome as Roan was beautiful, with a glamorous mop of wavy fair hair and dark blue, almost black eyes. He was dressed in an olive green moleskin suit with a bright orange waistcoat and a red scarf knotted loosely around his throat.
Roan stretched out on her back on the blanket and called over to James.
‘This is my pal, Dandy O’Keefe,’ she said. ‘Us paddies need to stick together, you know. We’re a long way from home.'”
