A fictionalized view of Irish rebellion told across three time periods: the late 18th century, the 1916 Easter Rising, and present day. From fiery Maeve who fights to maintain peace on her family’s Irish estate, to photographer Issy who records history during the Easter Rising, and finally to Laine who uncovers the trails Maeve and Issy left behind, this story highlights females caught in the midst of the violent conflicts between English and Irish over the years.
A pleasant, if quite predictable and saccharine, family saga. The three plot lines are uneven, which makes for a jarring read. Laine and Maeve’s stories are more romance-driven sagas, while Issy’s is a dramatic retelling of events inside a war zone.
Thanks to NetGalley for the book in exchange for my review.
