At age fifteen, Ned Halloran lost both of his parents – and almost his own life – when the Titanic sank. Determined to keep what little he has, he returns to his homeland of Ireland and enrolls at Saint Edna's school in Dublin. Saint Edna's headmaster is the renowned scholar and poet, Patrick Pearse – who is soon to gain greater fame as a rebel and patriot. Ned becomes deeply involved with the growing revolution . . . and the sacrifices it will demand.

O'Brien Pocket History of Irish Rebels

The stirring story of eighteen of Ireland's greatest rebels, from the sixteenth century to today. From the daring pirate-queen Grace O'Malley, to the fiery Protestant lawyer Theobald Wolfe Tone, and the courageous priest-patriot Fr John Murphy, Ireland's rebels have come from diverse backgrounds. But they all had one thing in common:…

Through Ned's eyes, Morgan Llywelyn's 1916 examines the Irish fight for freedom – inspired by poets and schoolteachers, fueled by a desperate desire for independence, and played out in the historic streets of Dublin against the background of World War I. It is a story of the brave men and heroic women who, for a few unforgettable days, managed to hold out against the might of the British Empire.
