Blinded in an attack in the aftermath of Irish independence, Rose Raven is living quietly with her brother. When she discovers he's involved in anti-government propaganda, she tells no one, even her lover Rudy. When Ultan dies, Rose is the only person who knows where the shameful truth is hidden.

Charting the dangerous first years of the Irish Free State, the novel tells the story of Rose's secrets, every one of them a risk to the success of the new Ireland.

MEDIA REVIEWS

A superbly crafted novel... It conveys with great skill - probably better than any history book could - the conflicting, crisscrossing, complex loyalties of so many families caught up in those high-octane, dangerous times.

-- Brian Maye * Irish Times *

A pacy plot, lyrical writing and compelling characters.

* Sunday Independent *

Timeless... A tragic story, but with enough warmth to ultimately feel life-affirming.

* Irish Independent *

A web of intrigue, love, loss and betrayal that keeps you hooked right up to the end.

* RTE Culture *

A novel with authentic atmosphere, compelling characters, flowing language and a tumultuous finish.

* The Business Post *

A masterful novel that will never leave you.

-- Julia Keller, Pulitzer Prize-winning writer

An engrossing, enlightening, beautiful novel.

-- Jennifer O'Connell, Irish Times writer

One of his best... I recommend it.

-- Former Taoiseach John Bruton * The Irish Catholic *

Elegant, supremely crafted.

-- Patrick McCabe

Cunningham's novel is lyrically tender, but grows into a forensic distillation of nationalist and religious faultlines.

-- Dermot Bolger

Freedom Is a Land I Cannot See is an intriguing, satisfying and beautiful novel about love, loss, truth and courage.

-- Ciaran Collins
