1921 continues Morgan Llywelyn's "Irish Century". She draws on many historical facts and fleshes them out with characters that bring the history to life. This novel tells of one of the saddest periods in Ireland, when brother fought brother in a civil war.
It personalizes the times with the story of two friends torn apart by their allegiances; wanting the same thing-independence for Ireland-but on opposite sides of the conflict. There's also the love story of Henry and Ella; one a Catholic, one a Protestant-an issue which still lives on in Ireland today.
