Lovers and Dancers (Ireland at War Book 1)

By Heather Ingman

Ireland, 1916. The First World War rages on and rumours fly about nationalists planning an uprising against the British for Independence.

Sheltered from the outside terrors, Louisa lives at High Park, an upper-class estate in the Irish countryside where she feels she never quite belonged. Caught between an unhappy marriage and mundane wifely duties, Louisa’s dream of being a painter never felt so distant.

But then she meets wild, strong-minded Viola Luttrell and Louisa’s world is turned upside down. Viola has a secret that could put both their lives at risk: she knows James Connolly, the nationalist rebel leader, and she plans to join the imminent uprising against the British.

As Viola and Louisa grow closer and their friendship blossoms into something more, the fight for freedom becomes more than a fight for a nation, but a fight for themselves.

Lovers and Dancers is a heart-wrenching tale of love lost and found, and of Irish history.
