  1. "We were taught nothing about Ireland or its history in school, and when I did learn of the part we played in that struggle I felt shame. The world should know about young men like Robert Emmet."-----Oscar-Winning actor COLIN FIRTH (Sunday Times Magazine)
"A great historical thriller and haunting love story." -- MAYO NEWS
"Beautifully written, meticulously researched, immensely enjoyable and, by turns, heartbreaking and uplifting." - SUNDAY INDEPENDENT.
"Written with feeling and humour, and the meticulous research illuminates the scene without ever intruding upon it". - SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
"Her research brought her to the Wicklow Hills, the archives in Dublin Castle, and back again to the Crown papers in London ... an incredible story." -- 'IRISH TIMES
"I can honestly say it's one of the most enjoyable books I've read." - IRISH WORLD
"A hidden, secret story behind the commonly received "facts", that has nothing to do with legend ... cuts across political or religious prejudices." -- BELFAST TELEGRAPH
"A truly incredible historical novel. From the very beginning of Tread Softly on My Dreams by Gretta Curran Browne, I was captivated by the rugged beauty of Ireland’s mountains and its soft lush valleys. The author’s detailed description enhanced the vision for the story, while each new character increased the intrigue. Every path provided clarity of the situation, both personal and political, showing great determined strength of the human spirit to stand firm in the belief of a free Ireland, even at the expense of their own lives. I cheered the hero and heroines of the story, applauding their successes and shedding tears at the injustices, brutality, and suffering of the people who simply wanted their freedom. The reader’s heart will swell with the love Robert has for Sarah, and the unspoken love Anne has for Robert. A fantastic read from beginning to end." -- READERS' FAVORITE

Set against the background of the beauty of Ireland, the dark clouds of its past, as well as the humour and dreams of its people, this is a passionate and powerful true story of three young people, Robert Emmet, Anne Devlin, and Sarah Curran, drawn together in love, in hope, and tragedy.
