Description

It is perilous to be a Catholic in the Ireland of 1735, and almost more than can be borne for fifteen-year-old Padraic Fitzbrian. Nearly 100 years before, Lord Protector Cromwell of England had put down the Irish rebellion?confiscating lands, killing priests, outlawing the Mass and prohibiting education of any kind for Irish Catholics.
Padraic and his two friends, Liam and Rose, are in their last year as scholars in the forbidden and risky classroom under the hedgerow. Harmless adventures mount into dangerous trouble as the three young people strive to take hold of the faith and patience that brings freedom amidst the worst tyranny. Recommended Grade 5 and up. 8.5 x 11 Inches. Softcover. 154 pp.
