Morgan Llywelyn''s masterly epic, The Irish Century, continues in 1949, a sequel to 1916 and 1921.The struggle of the Irish people for independence is one of the compelling historical dramas of the twentieth century. 1949 tells the story of Ursula Halloran, a fiercely independent young woman who comes of age in the 1920s. The tragedy of Irish civil war gives way in the 1920s to a repressive Catholic state led by Eamon De Valera. Married women cannot hold jobs, divorce is illegal, and the IRA has become a band of outlaws still devoted to and fighting for a Republic that never lived. The Great Depression stalks the world, and war is always on the horizon, whether in Northern Ireland, Spain, or elsewhere on the European continent.Ursula works for the fledgling Irish radio service and then for the League of Nations, while her personal life is torn between two men: an Irish civil servant and an English pilot.Defying Church and State, Ursula bears a child out of wedlock, though she must leave the country to do so, and nearly loses her life in the opening days of World War II. Eventually she returns to an Ireland that is steadfastly determined to remain neutral during the war.1949 is the story of one strong woman who lives through the progress of Ireland from a broken land to the beginnings of a modern independent state.The Irish Century Novels1916: A Novel of the Irish Rebellion1921: The Great Novel of the Irish Civil War1949: A Novel of the Irish Free State1972: A Novel of Ireland''s Unfinished Revolution1999: A Novel of the Celtic Tiger and the Search for Peace Morgan Llywelyn, Books, Fiction and Literature, 1949: A Novel Of The Irish Free State Books>Fiction and Literature, Tom Doherty Associates

1949 tells the story of Ireland's progress as seen through the eyes of one woman, from the bitter aftermath of civil war to the controversial dawn of a modern state. Ursula Halloran, the daughter of a famous revolutionary, comes of age in the turbulent 1920s. An education in Switzerland broadens her world view, but Ireland has become a repressive Catholic state where women are second-class citizens. Married women cannot hold jobs and divorce is illegal.Fighting against the stifling constraints of church and state, Ursula forges an exciting career in the fledgling Irish radio service. Her life is torn apart when she finds herself caught between two men who love her in very different ways. Refusing to surrender her hard-won independence to marriage, or her illegitimate infant to an orphanage, she flees to Europe to bear her child. There she takes a job with the League of Nations and is caught up in the terrifying outbreak of World War II. Hard decisions and desperate situations stand between her and any hope of returning to the land she loves. genre fiction,historical,historical fiction,literature and fiction,romance Historical Fiction, Forge Books
