GIVEAWAY: 3 copies of DUBLIN’S GIRL set in DUBLIN

18th July 2021

We are delighted to offer 3 copies of Dublin’s Girl by Eimear Lawlor, historical novel set in DUBLIN.

UK only3 copies of DUBLIN'S GIRL 1917. A farm girl from Cavan, Veronica McDermott is desperate to find more to life than peeling potatoes. Persuading her family to let her stay with her aunt and uncle in Dublin so she can attend secretarial college, she has no idea what she is getting into. Recruited by Fr Michael O’Flanagan to type for Eamon De Valera, Veronica is soon caught up in the danger and intrigue of those fighing for Ireland’s independence from Britain.

The attentions of a handsome British soldier, Major Harry Fairfax, do not go unnoticed by Veronica’s superiors. But when Veronica is tasked with earning his affections to gather intelligence for Sinn Féin, it isn’t long before her loyalty to her countrymen and her feelings for Harry are in conflict. To choose one is to betray the other…

Inspired by real life events and marking the centenary of the end of the War of Independence, Dublin’s Girl is a thrilling historical debut from an exciting new Irish voice.

    My mum born and raised in rural Ireland and became a trainee nurse in 1944. She was a trained mental health nurse and later a midwife. Her father was an activist so that period is very real for me, when she told stories of the hardship people had. Absolutely fascinates me.

    I love WW2 novels but most historical fiction is good at the moment I am reading Summer of The Three Pagodas by Jean Moran which is set in the 50’s and the war of North Korea trying to take over the South.

    I enjoy the between the war years when everyone dressed for dinner, and the pace of life was a little slower, however I am a fan of the Falco series sent in Roman times.

    I go through fads of reading about different eras but I always come back to the Tudor period. Currently though I’m loving early to mid 20th century settings.

    World War 2 – fascinating to read about life in those times – from clothing, food, life in general. We shouldn’t complain about life now.
