The Nationalists.

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/the-nationalists...
Synopsis - The Nationalists. At its heart this novel is about a doomed love story between the two main protagonists - an Irish Times journalist, Tony McAnthony, and a Kerrywoman and member of Cumann na mBan, Angela O'Sullivan. Sparks fly when they meet in the GPO during the 1916 Rising. Their relationship doesn't get off to a good start as Tony is held twice by the British on suspicion of being a rebel. Another character who features highly is Father John Troy, the parish priest of the Pro-Cathedral, who personally intervenes to try and save the rebel leaders from being shot. At the start of the novel he's a pacifist, but as the story progresses, he becomes more revolutionary and outspoken in his ideas.A similar metamorphosis happens with Tony and he too becomes more revolutionary in his actions. This will create conflict with Angela later in the book. The novel spans the turbulent years in Irish history from 1916 to 1923. The first few chapters are therefore concerned with the Rising itself and its aftermath. Things have moved on by the middle of the book to Sinn Fein's success in the 1918 elections, and to the War of Independence. It is during the Tan war that Tony leaves aside the pen of the journalist and takes up arms. In particular, he avenges the rape of one of Angela's friends. She has been subjected to a terrible rape by a Tan soldier. Following on from the Tan war, the latter stages of the book follow Tony as he dons the uniform of a Free State captain. Angela, on the other hand, is heavily embroiled with the Irregulars and at the end of the book she is killed in a firefight involving Tony's men and the forces of Liam Lynch in the Knockmealdown mountains. This will break Tony's heart, and he decides that following the Irish Civil War, to go into exile and sail to America. Father Troy is on the same ship, having antagonised the hierarchy too much, both in Dublin and in Rome. The novel attempts to relate the story of how a cultural revolution occurred in tandem

The Scribe

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/the-scribe-5...
There is a deep, rich vein of spirituality running through The Scribe, a novel that attempts to resurrect the story of Luke the Evangelist. The story isn't simply about Luke however, a whole host of other characters also appear, including Escobar - a member of the Sanhedrin who becomes disillusioned after the crucifixion of Jesus. Ioanna, or St John also has a role to play. He's one of a number of actual characters that include Jesus and his mother Mary, John the Baptist, the Apostles including Simone/Cephas, St Paul, Pontius Pilate, and various Roman Emperors. Fictional characters interwoven into the story include Escobar and his family; an Egyptian couple Ibrahim and Sarah who meet Jesus; Cesari Ciccone and his wife Rebecca, the parents of Luke (took a few liberties here for the purpose of storytelling); Lucius Scarpacco, an arch enemy of Cesari; and the Santos brothers, sea-faring twins, one of whom is crucified and left for dead by the Romans but is saved by Luke; and The Seer, a mystical figure. There's also a character called Marcus, important because he shows the power of redemption in the novel between himself and Luke. The novel spans a time period of one hundred years and explores the spread of Christianity. The novel is set in the Holy Land, in Egypt, Syria, Cyprus, Malta, and Rome.

The Show Must Go On! Popular Song in Britain During the First World War

https://store.kobobooks.com/en-US/ebook/the-show-must-go-on-...
Using a collection of over one thousand popular songs from the war years, as well as around 150 soldiers' songs, John Mullen provides a fascinating insight into the world of popular entertainment during the First World War. Mullen considers the position of songs of this time within the history of popular music, and the needs, tastes and experiences of working-class audiences who loved this music. To do this, he dispels some of the nostalgic, rose-tinted myths about music hall. At a time when recording companies and record sales were marginal, the book shows the centrality of the live show and of the sale of sheet music to the economy of the entertainment industry. Mullen assesses the popularity and significance of the different genres of musical entertainment which were common in the war years and the previous decades, including music hall, revue, pantomime, musical comedy, blackface minstrelsy, army entertainment and amateur entertainment in prisoner of war camps. He also considers non-commercial songs, such as hymns, folk songs and soldiers' songs and weaves them into a subtle and nuanced approach to the nature of popular song, the ways in which audiences related to the music and the effects of the competing pressures of commerce, propaganda, patriotism, social attitudes and the progress of the war.
