Through the Barricades: Book to Watch

Very excited to learn that Through the Barricades has been chosen as a Publishers Weekly Booklife ‘Books to Watch.’

Here’s what they said:

Through the Barricades
by Denise Deegan

Synopsis: In 1913 Ireland, Maggie Gilligan meets Daniel Healy. But as their friendship turns to romance, WWI begins and Healy signs up to fight.

PW’s Takeaway: An engrossing look at a chapter of Irish history.

Comparable Titles: Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys

Sample Line: “Maggie woke coughing. It was dark but there was something other than darkness in the air, something that climbed into her mouth, scratched at her throat and stole her breath.”


Heartfelt thanks to Publishers Weekly Booklife.
