Dancers of Fortune

(2005)
A novel by

 
It's 1902, and Dubliner Joe Sweet from Little Jerusalem dives into the Liffey after a street arab who has stolen his wallet. But little does Joe know that this one crazy act will change the course of his life forever.

When the beautiful Miss Victoria Brewer witnesses the heroics of a dashingly exotic man risking life and limb in the capital's raging river, she is struck by an immediate attraction. The unlikely pair recognise something in each other and become passionate lovers.Victoria's twin Arthur becomes Joe's firm friend and the brewer and building contractor prosper in business. Joe will stop short of nothing on his road to prosperity, but when he meets and falls for the beautiful and devout Jewish actress Gloria he realises how far away from the Jewish faith and life he has come.

As the years pass and the Irish Republican Brotherhood exposes the discontent of the Irish people, Joe and Arthur come to realise their complicity in the system which keeps Irish people poor. By Easter 1916 both men and Arthur's wife Deirdre are heavily involved in the cause, with Joe becoming one of Michael Collins' right-hand men and taking danger and risk in his stride.

A captivating look at the interconnected lives of people from all walks of Irish life during a period of enormous change in Irish history.
