In A Twisted Root Patricia Craig traces the remarkable stories of her ancestors, weaving the threads of their individual lives into the sweeping panorama of Irish history.

From her multiply-great grandmother Katherine Rose, who made her way from Stratford-upon-Avon to Lisburn as part of the Plantation of Ulster, to Benjamin and Rebecca Lett - children at the time - who escaped the massacre at Scullabogue;

from her forebear William Blacker who founded the Orange Order, to her great-uncles Matt, Frank, Gerry and Jimmy, who were all active in the IRA in the 1920s, this astonishing cast of characters creates a compelling portrait of a family and brings Irish history to life.
