New York Times bestselling author Kate Kerrigan brings Dublin’s past vividly alive in her heart-wrenching short story about the forbidden passion between a soldier and a rebel, and the woman years later who discovers their secret.
When British soldier Clive Postlethwaite wandered into Dublin’s National Gallery, falling in love with a fiery Irish girl was the last thing on his mind. As soon as he meets Eileen O’Hara, he’s instantly enthralled with her humor and beauty. But the Irish Republicans are rebelling against Home Rule every day, and Clive and Eileen may be forced to choose sides, forever.
Originally published in the moving collection Fall of Poppies: Stories of Love and the Great War, this e-book also includes an excerpt from Kerrigan’s novel Ellis Island, available now.
