What a treasured book this is for me. There’s even a picture of a sketch of Governor John Parr on page 40. I’d share a copy of this sketch with you here but that would mean damage to the spin of my book as it is old and brittle. Mmmmm. The smell of old books.
The author of this story did his research before the 1922 fires in Ireland. If his working files are ever located, keep your fingers crossed that MacDonald did a thorough research of Parrs in the area of Ireland noted in his opening chapter.
