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.
