Life sucks for twelve-year-old Irish-American Ava when she is dragged to Dublin by her mother during her parents’ bitter break-up. She is bullied at her new school and her only friend is moody teenage neighbour Mal, who has secrets of his own.

But when Ava finds an emerald and a bundle of old letters in the attic, she is plunged into a historical mystery linking the missing Crown Jewels of Tsarist Russia to the heart of Ireland’s bloody Civil War in 1922.

Who was the author of the letters – young medical student Molly O’Donovan? Why did her brother Jack the Cat smuggle the jewels from the United States? And did her football-mad cousin Dan make it through the seaborne invasion of the south to put down the rebels?

Through the eyes of Molly, Ava encounters the death of Michael Collins, deadly ambushes in Kerry and the tragic fate of former comrades.

As Ava learns about the tragedy of the Civil War, she is forced to confront the conflict in her own life. Can the journey into the past help her to learn the importance of reconciliation and new beginnings?

Praise for The War of Independence 1920-22 – Dan's Diary

”A wonderfully timely book. The author has woven a

fantastic adventure story into a seminal period of Irish

history.” InTouch magazine
