Liberty Boy by David Gaughran The Irish had a long struggle towards their goal of gaining Independence. Much has been written about the 1916 Easter Uprising, however, David Gaughran's new book is the first of a series that follows the life of Jimmy O'Flaherty and Kitty Doyle. Set in the background of Robert Emmet's abortive rebellion against British rule in 1803, the author introduces us to our protagonists. Jimmy is a trader, he wants nothing to do with the United Irishmen or their rebellion. Following the defeat of 1798, where Jimmy's father died, he has set his mind on raising enough money to emigrate to America, where his cousin Donal has already set camp. But fate intervenes and Jimmy meets Kitty, with whom he falls in love. Just like many other historical fiction novels, the guy who least wanted a piece of the action in a revolution ends up right in the middle of it. The book is narrated from the third person point of view from our two heroes. The prose is almost poetic and the plot flows easily. The characters are alive and engaging. I read it in two days. Could not put it down. Looking forward to the next installment!
