Publication Day!

through-the-barricades-ebook-coverVery happy to announce that my new novel, Through the Barricades, is out today. Published under the name Denise Deegan it is a historical story of love and revolution.

Here is the jacket copy:

‘Make a difference in the world,’ are the last words Maggie Gilligan’s father ever says to her. They form a legacy that she carries in her heart, years later when, at the age of fifteen, she tries to better the lives of Dublin’s largely forgotten poor.

‘Don’t go getting distracted, now,’ is what Daniel Healy’s father says to him after seeing him talking to the same Maggie Gilligan. Daniel is more than distracted. He is intrigued. Never has he met anyone as dismissive, argumentative… as downright infuriating.

A dare from Maggie is all it takes. Daniel volunteers at a food kitchen. There, his eyes are opened to the plight of the poor. It is 1913 and Dublin’s striking workers have been locked out of their jobs. Their families are going hungry. Daniel and Maggie do what they can. Soon, however, Maggie learns that the only way to make a difference is to take up arms.

The story of Maggie and Daniel is one of friendship, love, war and revolution, of two people who are prepared to sacrifice their lives: Maggie for her country, Daniel for Maggie. Their mutual sacrifices put them on opposite sides of a revolution. Can their love survive?

Through the Barricades is available on amazon.com and amazon.co.uk. Really hope you enjoy. Have a wonderful Christmas.

  1. Exhilarating! Heart-stopping, romantic and fascinating history all in one book! Couldn’t put it down!
    How very grizzly WWI was! Book helped me understand a bit better all the animosity between the Irish and the English too. Thank you! (I can hardly wait to tell my friend from Dublin, who married a man from London!)
