"We were taught nothing about Ireland or its history in school, and when I did learn of the part we played in that struggle, I felt shame. The world should know about young men like Tone and Robert Emmet."-------Oscar-winning actor COLIN FIRTH (Sunday Times Magazine 2012)
AN EPIC NOVEL FROM IRELAND'S PAST (BOOK #1 in THE LIBERTY TRILOGY)
The book some critics are calling "THE IRISH 'LES MISERABLES'.
And others (Ireland On Sunday) ) "On as grand a scale as Flanagan's THE YEAR OF THE FRENCH"
`Beautifully written, meticulously researched, immensely enjoyable and, by turns, heartbreaking and uplifting.
Set against the background of a country in turmoil, Tread Softly On My Dreams is the passionate and powerful true story of Robert Emmet, a young Protestant who became one of Ireland's most famous rebels.
Robert's devotion to his dream will change the lives of all those who love him. Sacrifice and tragedy await the courageous Anne Devlin, while romance blossoms between Robert and Sarah Curran. But can love survive amid the turbulent fight for freedom?
`Although I started off thinking this would be a love story, an incredible tale of political corruption began to unfold.'
