Hannie Rising

A novel by

Mickey Enright isn't ready to be dead. His life on earth has been more than satisfactory. He is an icon in Tralee, a "typical Kerryman," an easy-going, life-of-the-party jokester, a man's man, a decent, although unexceptional, provider who took for granted the faithfulness of his wife, the love of his children, Kerry football, and a few pints with the lads in Betty's Pub on Rock Street. Convinced there has been a mistake, he demands another chance at mortality. St. Peter, with an agenda of his own, sends Mickey back to Tralee... as a stranger. Meanwhile, Hannie, Mickey's widow, has begun to resurface from her loss and celebrate her freedom. She has also learned a thing or two about her late husband, enough to convince her that life after marriage might be more satisfying than it was during. Mickey, his original purpose to win back a few more years of his former life, finds himself in the unique position of attempting to court his wife, a woman he believes holds no surprises for him and, in so doing, learns a thing or two about Hannie and even more about himself.
