Budge

The fictional Barnaby Budge, nephew of Doctor Simeon Pincher, the Puritan preacher, arrives in Ireland with Cromwell, expecting to receive Irish land in return for the money he had given the Parliamentary side in the Civil War against King Charles I of England. In many ways typical of their kind, the second book of Rutherfurd's Irish saga traces the fortunes of this Cromwellian settler family through to the commencement of the Irish Free State.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
In 1890, nine-year-old Daisy Ashford wrote a novel and never showed it to the world. It was only after her mother’s death some twenty-eight years later, when she was sorting through old papers with her sisters, that she found the manuscript in a drawer. After the manuscript found its way to publishers, the book – The Young Visiters – came out in 1919, (yes, that is how the title was spelled) to great acclaim. After the book went into several editions, Daisy bought a farm with her earnings, commenting, “I like fresh air and royalty cheques”.
