Selected as the 2016 'ONE CITY ONE BOOK' title for both Dublin and Belfast.

Fallen by Lia Mills - a remarkable love story amidst the ruins of the First World War and the Easter Rising. Katie Crilly gets the news she dreaded: her beloved twin brother, Liam, has been killed on the Western Front. A year later, when her home city of Dublin is suddenly engulfed by the violence of the Easter Rising, Katie finds herself torn by conflicting emotions and loyalties. Taking refuge in the home of a friend, she meets Hubie Wilson, a friend of Liam's from the Front. There unfolds a remarkable encounter between two young people, both wounded and both trying to imagine a new life.

"Lia Mills writes superbly about the human heart. This is an historical story with an urgency that is completely modern: Fallen is shot through with the pleasure and the difficulty of being alive". (Anne Enright).

"A hugely evocative and skilful novel". (Kevin Barry).

"Tremendously passionate, vivid and humane ...Mills has an exquisite eye for the telling image". (Irish Independent).

"Absorbing ...Mills is a fine storyteller". (Sunday Times).

"Vivid ...a careful study of how grief, oppression, violence and, above all, the imperative to follow orders can blight people's lives". (Irish Mail on Sunday).

"Powerful ...Katie is a brilliantly realised heroine ...humane and compelling". (Sunday Business Post).

"[An] intelligent, beautifully written tale of ordinary people in troubled times". (Sunday Independent).
