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?
October, derived from the Latin Octo, which means eight, was actually the eighth month of the year in the original Roman calendar of ten months. It wasn’t until the Julian calendar was introduced by Julius Caesar in the first century BC that January and February were added. The Julian calendar remained the predominant calendar in Europe through the sixteenth century, until it was amended to the Gregorian calendar we still use today.
