Description

Easter Monday 1916, one of the most momentous and terrible days in the troubled history of Ireland, when a group of rebels try to wrest the government of their country from the might of the British Empire. Michael is determined to play his part in the historic events. His brother may be fighting for the British in the trenches of Flanders, but Michael will fight for his country's freedom - to the death if necessary. Daisy is American, but her parents are Irish, and she is prepared to do anything for the cause - and girls can fight as well as men, for what they believe in. Sarah just wants to be a nurse, to do her bit to help the wounded soldiers back from the battlefields in France, soldiers like her brother. But when the hospital in Dublin Castle gets caught in the uprising, Sarah finds her loyalties stretched to the limit. How can Irishmen be her enemy? She just wants to see an end to the killing, an end to the fear. This work is a wonderfully emotional telling of the momentous events of Easter Monday 1916 in Dublin. This subject is of interest to all those who are interested in the ongoing troubles in Northern Ireland.show more
