1916, A Novel of the Irish Rebellion
LITERATURE 1999 PAPER 544 PAGES YOUNG ADULTS
Llywelyn, the queen of Irish historical pulp fiction, tells a story of the Easter Rising of 1916. Her books, like those of James Michener, are reliably chockfull of history and true characters -- and are considerably hotter stuff than most history texts. She writes well, always, making this a good choice for light reading.
