Under the Wild Sky by Mary Ryan

20160506_133653New in at Charlie Byrne’s, we have signed copies of Mary Ryan’s latest novel Under the Wild Sky, a saga of love and ware in revolutionary Ireland.

After centuries of oppression, trouble is fermenting in Ireland. As anti-English sentiment builds, trainee teacher Ellen Healy falls in love with Guy Forrister, a cadet in the British army and a proud defender of the Empire. But their love affair takes place in the shadow of war and revolution, forcing the young couple to cross political and religious divides that are becoming ever more entrenched.

A passionate nationalist, Ellen’s brother Harry joins the fledgling Irish Volunteers to fight for independence. Harry’s beautiful fiancée, Deirdre, is determined to fight alongside him, but when rebellion takes hold of Dublin during Easter 1916, the brutal consequences of confronting an empire quickly become clear.

Ellen, Harry and Guy are three young friends in the cross hairs of history. As war spreads through Europe and insurrection brews in Dublin, they must question the convictions that have defined their lives.
