New Short Stories by Mary O’Donnell
Empire (Arlen House, 2018)
This collection of short stories focuses on Irish people who lived during the 1915–1919 period. One story is set in Burma, where the British Empire was very strongly established. Other pieces concentrate on the lives and passions of Irish people caught within the weakening empire.
