A KAVANAGH STORY I: A FEW MEN FAITHFUL
Jim Wills
A Few Men Faithful, which takes place from 1916 to 1924, begins the four-volume saga of the Kavanagh family. Danny Kavanagh, a died-in-the-wool Republican from Crossmaglen in County Armagh, survives the Easter Rising, the Secret War, the War of Independence, and the Anglo-Irish Treaty of 1921, only to find himself on the losing side of the Irish Civil War. His impossible love for Sophia O’Faolain and his dream of a united, 32-county Ireland, free from the presence of England, keeps him sane throughout the battles, killings, executions, and treacheries.

A KAVANAGH STORY III: SHOOTER IN A PLAGUE YEAR
Jim Wills
It appears that peace, possibly lasting, is coming to Ireland in 2018, which is the worst possible outcome for some hardliners in Northern Ireland, after 800 years of war. A nightmarish scenario completes the gory chapters of Ireland’s past: the moderates are eliminated, leaving the newly formed New IRA to face off against the shadowy Core Command for domination. Both claim the Red Hand of Ulster as their symbol; both claim nationalism; and both are equally devious and secretive. High-tech weapons defend ancient hatreds. Does anyone win?
