Abstract:

Almost everyone of her own generation in Ireland knew the story of Grace Gifford. She became part of the drama of the 1916 insurrection when she married Joseph Mary Plunkett in Kilmainham Jail a few hours before his execution. He had been one of the leaders in the fight for Irish freedom and also one of the signatories of the Proclamation of the Republic. This book tells the story of her life for the first time. Those who knew her well spoke of her beauty, and of a charm laced with a mordant wit which spared neither friend nor foe. Her story has been compared to something from the novels of French writer Honore de Balzac. In her case, the truth is indeed stranger than fiction. -- Publisher description.
