Ned Halloran lost both his parents-and almost his own life-in the sinking of the Titanic. Determined to keep what little he has, he returns to his homeland of Ireland and enrolls at Saint Edna's school in Dublin. Saint Edna's headmaster is the renowned scholar and poet, Patrick Pearse--who is soon to gain greater fame as a rebel and patriot. Ned becomes totally involved with the growing revolution…and the sacrifices it will demand.

Through Ned's eyes, 1916 examines the Irish fight for freedom-inspired by poets and schoolteachers, fueled by a desperate desire for independence, and played out in the historic streets of Dublin against the background of World War I. It is a story of the brave men and heroic women who, for a few unforgettable days, managed to hold out against the might of the British Empire.

Praise for 1916

“The politics and factionalism behind the Rising are a tangled web indeed, but Llywelyn unravels them skillfully. Even those who know the story well will be surprised and rewarded by the way she brings back to life a group of brave men who went nobly to their deaths.”
--The Philadelphia Inquirer

“Llywelyn's strength as a writer is to be found…in her ability to follow a course, sewing it seamlessly into what must have been a daunting array of historical notes.…She weaves the tapestry of her story with intelligence and skill, and gives us access to a period when the bullets flew and patriots gave their lives for the ideal of freedom, not knowing that from the ashes of their martyrdom 'the right of the people of Ireland to the ownership of Ireland' would be acknowledged, and an Irish Republic would be born.”
--San Diego Union-Tribune
