Smith

At the end of the first book of Rutherfurd's Irish saga, the love-child of Sean O'Byrne runs away to Dublin and takes the name of Smith. In the second book, we follow the fortunes of the Smith family, their rise to wealth, their fall, and their later careers as intellectuals, patriots and rebels in the Easter Rising.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
The first leap year in the modern sense was in 1752 in Britain, with the adoption of the Gregorian calendar by Britain and her colonies. This was not the first time leap years had been used; the Julian calendar used before 1752 had a simpler system of leap years, and The Islamic calendar Al-Hijra also has an extra day added to the 12th month Zul Hijja on leap years.
