THE RISING is both a classic love story and a vivid dramatization of the struggle for Irish independence. Set between the death of Parnell in 1891 and the 1916 Rising, it follows the fortunes of a young Irish couple: Michael Carty, a rural small-holder who sets out for Enniscorthy after the death of his Fenian father, and Margaret Dempsey, daughter of a prosperous merchant family situated there. What follows is an account of their unlikely love and life together: a domestic story overshadowed by momentous events of Irish history, which ultimately threaten Michael's life and his family's welfare.Displaying a decided gift for dialogue, and a quietly assured prose style of extraordinary clarity, Bairbre Toibin has given us a compelling story of personal innocence and political idealism, history as it happens to the rank and file. THE RISING is a stunning debut by a major new voice.

A light read about the 1916 Easter uprising. Not very well written and the ending is terrible
