The Girls of Ennismore - Patricia Falvey

I enjoyed reading this book. It was interesting to read about the 1916 Irish uprisings. It was sad that they didn't even have enough weapons to fight and that the uprising only lasted about two days, if that. Then everyone who fought went to jail.

I am still a little perturbed about how Rosie was treated. I understand it to some degree since she came from a poor family, but they educated her and then treated her like a slave and sometimes worse. I really felt sorry for her.

About 1/4 of the way through the book, I had enough of Lady Ennis and I was glad of the way Lord Ennis' sister treated her. She deserved worse. The only thing she was good at was complaining. What a miserable woman.

Which leads me to say I loved the ending and I was glad that I requested the book and got to read it.

Thanks to Kensington Books for approving my request and to Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest review.
