Saint Patrick

Ireland's patron saint. Modern Irish scholarship has raised a number of interesting questions about the status, political acumen and mission of Saint Patrick, and these are incorporated in to the telling of the story - in which the saint makes a personal appearance - in three of the chapters of the first book of Edward Rutherfurd's Irish saga.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
Hard to believe, but this month of April is the 50th anniversary of the 'official' break-up of the Beatles. This author was a very timid young student at Cambridge then. But the far more worldly and talented guy who had the room across the corridor from me had a lovely girlfriend who worked for John Lennon; and one day they scooped me up and took me to Lennon's house at Ascot. The white house with the white piano. Lennon himself wasn't there, but all the same . . . Fifty years later, that day is still so vivid
