The Irish fight for independence is one of the most captivating
tales of the twentieth century. Morgan Llywelyn, the acclaimed
historical writer of books like "Lion of Ireland, Bard "and "The
Horse Goddess," is the writer born to bring this epic battle to
life. Having created an entire body of work chronicling the Celts
and Ireland, she now turns to recent Irish history to create a
multivolume saga: "The Irish Century."
"1921 "tells the story of the Irish War of Independence and the
heartbreaking civil war that followed. Henry Mooney, a reporter for
the"Clare Champion" and the "Irish Bulletin," is a self-described
"moderate nationalist" who struggles to see the truth in the news
of the day, and to report it fairly. Lacking more radical
Republican beliefs of his dear friends Ned Halloran and Sile Duffy,
Henry reports the political--and later, bloody--actions of his
fellow Irishman from the ashes of the failed 1916 Rising to the
creation of the Irish Free State to the tragic and wide-ranging
battles of the Irish Civil War.
Meanwhile, Henry feels the impact of these history-changing events
in his own personal life. His friendship with Ned falters when
their political beliefs diverge, and an unexpected tragedy leaves
them further apart than ever. Henry struggles with his passion for
a well-bred Protestant Anglo-Irish woman, Ella Rutledge, and as he
dutifully reports the events in the political battle for
independence, he comes to realize that the Irish struggle for
freedom wil leave no life untouched--and no Irish citizen with a
dry eye or an untroubled heart.
