Long Shadows Cast Before: Nine Lives in Ulster, 1625-1977
Over 300 years and nine generations separate Charles Brett, the author of this book, from the William Brett who first settled in Co. Down ... this book is at once a chronicle of the family's adventures and fortunes over three chequered centuries of Irish history, and an autobiographical account of the author's own experiences.
