The Rising is both a classic love story and a vivid dramatization of the struggle for Irish independence. Set between the death of Parnell in 1891 and the 1916 Rising, it follows the fortunes of a young Irish couple: Michael Carty, a rural small-holder who sets out for Enniscorthy after the death of his Fenian father, and Margaret Dempsey, daughter of a prosperous merchant family situated there. What follows is an account of their unlikely love and life together: a domestic story overshadowed by momentous events of Irish history, which ultimately threaten Michael's life and his family's welfare.
