Book Description

4 April 2005

A deeply moving saga of a young couple with high hopes for a bright future in rural Ireland, only to find themselves embroiled in the uprising of 1916 and having to make a new life for themselves in Birmingham.

Rosie’s family doesn’t have much money, but she’s rich in other ways: she loves her life on the farm, her sisters, her friends, and even her spoilt baby brother. When Danny Walsh asks her to walk out with him one Sunday, it’s a dream come true.

Everyone agrees that they are made for each other and soon they are married. But Danny’s young brother runs away to join in the uprising of Easter 1916. Danny is a man of peace but has no choice; he must find his brother and bring him home. Before he can be released, Danny must swear to take his place.

Danny will never be free of his pledge. He takes Rosie and their small daughter to what they hope is safety in Birmingham – but the fight to survive has just begun, as nobody will employ an Irishman when there’s a war on. With no money coming in, Rosie does the unthinkable and leaves Danny to look after the child while she finds a job in munitions. Little does she realise the danger she is in and what consequences it will have for her and her family. Danny and Rosie will find their resources, spirit and love for each other are tested to the utmost limit before the future is bright again.

More About the Author

Hi, my 18th novel 'A Girl Can Dream' was published by Harper Collins and released on 22nd May 2014. I began writing in 1995 when I was no longer able to teach, because writing was something I'd always longed to do. So I wrote 4 books for children, numerous short stories and a thriller before I found my niche as a saga writer and my first book, "A Little Learning" was accepted in 1997 by Headline Publishing. In 2001 I changed publishers and "Walking Back to Happiness" was published by Harper Collins and since then I have been producing a book for them every nine months.Details of all my books are on my web site www.annebennett.co.uk Check it out and get in touch if you'd like to. I would love to hear from you..

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely story 14 Aug 2010
Format:Paperback
I enjoyed this book, the first I've read from Anne Bennett. I don't read many sagas these days, but it was nice to pick one up and find it a good read.

Set in Ireland and England during the Dublin riots in 1916 and then WWI in England the story is about Rosie and Danny and their fight to keep together when circumstances change their lives from rural Ireland to the teeming tenements of Birmingham, England.

A real and gritty love story, just the kind I like.

I couldn't put this down. I would certainly read more of Anne bennetts books. It's a pity there wasn't a bit more about Ireland and the ira in the book though. I would reccomend this book to others, and I was even more happy when I learned I had downloaded this book for free, when now it is over 6.00 to download.
