Leaders. Rebels. Pioneers. Short stories about some of Ireland's trailblazing women by award-winning writer Martina Devlin.

In this collection we encounter Countess Markievicz back from the dead to cast a disapproving eye over modern Ireland, Hanna Sheehy Skeffington on hunger strike in prison, and Somerville and Ross discussing book business with their London agent Mr Pinker.
 
Other we meet include a range of activists – Anna Parnell in a pawnshop, Belfast’s Mary Ann McCracken walking her brother to the scaffold, and Dr Kathleen Lynn locking horns with an archbishop.
 
Authentic and poignant, witty and revealing, Truth & Dare draws on true events to breathe life into an extraordinary cast of women.
 
Their times were out of step with them – now their time has come
