Patrick of Ireland: The Boy Who Forgave, by K. C. Murdarasi
Who was the real St Patrick? Strip away the myths to discover what we really know about the late Roman figure Patricius.
Kidnapped by Irish raiders as a teenager, Patrick spent several years as a slave before escaping back to Britain – and suffering a shipwreck en route. As if that wasn’t enough adventure for one lifetime, Patrick was then called back to Ireland in a dream, this time not as a slave, but as a missionary. But getting back to Ireland would prove no more straightforward than escaping from it.
A novelised biography of St Patrick, Ireland’s mysterious patron saint, for age 9 upwards.
