The Rising is both a classic love story and a vivid dramatization of the struggle for Irish independence. Set primarily in Wexford, between the death of Ireland's great politician and patriot, Charles Stewart Parnell, and the fiery republicanism of the 1916 Easter Rising, The Rising follows the fortunes of a young Irish couple. Michael Carty is a small tenant farmer who sets out for Enniscorthy after the death of his Fenian father. Margaret Dempsey is the daughter of a prosperous merchant family in the town. What follows is an account of their unlikely love and life together-a domestic tale overshadowed by momentous events in Irish history, events that ultimately threaten Michael's life and his family's welfare. An exciting novel of love and family, character and conscience, and the struggle for independence, 'The Rising' is a stunning debut by another one of Ireland's new generation of fine young writers.

Review:

If you're looking for a book to fill you with Irish pride, this one is for you. It's a Romeo and Juliet romance ... Impeccably researched and the dialogue and prose are so clear, it's almost like you're eavesdropping on a conversation―Irish Mail on Sunday

The Rising is a wonderfully moving book, beautifully written, about one family's experience of a pivotal event in Irish history. The town of Enniscorthy is evoked with immense skill and compassionate imagination, and an unforgettable portrait of a family in crisis emerges.―Catriona Crowe
