A LIGHT IN THE SKY by Donald Giltinan (1962)

"Dealing with a highly dramatic period in the life of Robert Emmet, the famous 18th Century failed revolutionary, Giltinan asks many questions of history. How aspiring for martyrdom was he? Was he a fair man? Was his judgement clouded by his infatuation with the daughter of John Philpot Curran? Were his efforts to seize Dublin Castle futile, given his small number of followers?"
