After The Rising & Before The Fall: Centenary Edition
A love forbidden by family. A feud spanning generations.
A woman still yearning for freedom.
Twenty years after she was driven away from her family and the only man she ever truly loved, Jo Devereux has returned to the small Irish village where she grew up. And this time, she wants answers.
What happened to her family during the Irish Civil War? Did her great-uncle's best friend really shoot him dead? And what did this "war of the brothers" mean for mothers, sisters and daughters?
Searching through papers bequeathed by her estranged mother, Jo uncovers astonishing truths about her grandmother and great-aunt - secrets of a cold-blooded murder with consequences that ricocheted down the generations into her own life.
Urged on by Rory O'Donovan, her lost love and the son of her family's sworn enemies, Jo is tempted to reignite the fires of rebellion. Can she ever go back to the life she'd made for herself in San Francisco? Or will what she's learning about her heritage incite her to cast off caution - and claim what should have been hers?
In this heart-breaking saga about a young woman, her doomed lover, and the war-torn history that threatens to destroy their future as well as their past, you'll find almost 600 pages of romance, revenge and redemption by the bestselling and award-winning author Orna Ross.
