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.”
