Out June 6th Out June 6th 1941 "Kitty's War" - “Ireland a land of neutrality, her courage becomes the battleground."

Dear Readers,

I am thrilled to announce the release of my second novel, "Kitty's War," published by Head of Zeus. This story is a labour of love, and I am excited to share it with all of you.

About "Kitty's War"

Set against the backdrop of World War II, "Kitty's War" follows the life of Kathleen "Kitty" Flinn, a young Irish woman who faces immense personal and societal challenges during one of history's most tumultuous periods. From the bomb-ravaged streets of London to the serene yet conflicted Irish countryside, Kitty's journey is one of resilience, love, and survival.

Discovering Hidden Histories

When I first started writing about Kitty, I stumbled upon the fascinating yet largely untold story of British and German internees in The Curragh during the Second World War. This discovery was not only intriguing but also provided a rich historical context that deeply influenced the narrative of "Kitty's War." The Curragh Camp in County Kildare housed both British and German soldiers, creating a unique microcosm of the broader conflict. This aspect of Irish history is seldom discussed, and I felt compelled to bring it to light through Kitty's story.

Research and Inspiration

My research for "Kitty's War" was extensive and immersive. I delved into archives, interviewed historians, and pored over personal letters and diaries from the era. The more I learned, the more I felt a profound connection to the characters and their experiences. It became clear to me that this story needed to be told, not just for its historical significance but for its timeless themes of courage, identity, and the complexities of human relationships.

Join Me on This Adventure

I invite you to read "Kitty's War" and join me in uncovering the hidden stories of our past. Your support means the world to me, and I am grateful for every reader who embarks on this journey with Kitty and me.

Warm regards,

Eimear xx
