Summary

An Irish Easter uprising lays waste to Dublin and fractures a British Empire struggling to supply men and arms to defeat Germany.  

In Dublin’s ruins, the affluent and celebrated Carmody family is not only forced to confront the rebellion’s devastating effects on its personal lives, but also the terrible secrets and lies uncovered in the midst of grief. Forced to abandon their home in the Irish capital for London, each family member must strive to survive poverty, the horrors of war, and personal bouts with excessive pride and passion - but loyalty to family proves to be the most difficult cross to bear. 

Danny, the youngest, is an Irish Republican rebel who risks everything to fight for an independent Ireland. Patrick, a surgeon, swears allegiance to Britain and joins His Majesty’s Royal Navy, which is engaged in tense battles to control the seas. 

Jenny, self-entitled and strong-willed, sees her wedding plans and grand ambitions disintegrate. With a fiancé incarcerated in a rebel prison camp and no prospects of her own, she faces a dismal life in one of London’s munitions factories - until a personal, cataclysmic event changes her life and perception of love forever.
