Across the Divide

by Brian Gallagher
£6.99   paperback  O'Brien Press Ltd (2010)

Across the Divide by Brian Gallagher What happens when your best friend ought to be your enemy?
 
Liam and Nora form an unlikely friendship when he lends her a helping hand during a music competition. Liam's father, a mechanic, is a proud trade union member, while Nora's father is a prosperous wine importer.
 
When Jim Larkin takes on the might of the employers in 1913, resulting in strikes, riots and lockouts, Liam and Nora's friendship is challenged and their loyalties torn.
 
Caught up in events that they don't fully understand, the two come face to face with hardship and danger, but also find humour and generosity as they set out on an adventure that may make or break their friendship, but will definitely change their lives forever.
 
The historical events of the Dublin 1913 Lockout vividly portrayed through the lives of two young friends.
