|Plot Summary of The Dreams of Mairhe Mehan|
|"Mairhe Mehan is a young Irish girl living in the slums of Washington DC during the Civil War. Mairhe's family has been separated; her brother is off to fight for the Union, and her father pines for his native Ireland as his mental capacity deteriorates. The story is told through Mairhe's dreams, a poetic mix of Irish lore and the stark (but somehow dreamy) reality of the war."
Ashareh, Resident Scholar
