My Father's Lands is a searing love story and a poignant insight into the last stand of the old Gaelic world against English supremacy prior to the Ulster Plantation. The treaty of Surrender and re-grant made by Henry VIII with the Irish chieftains, by which they surrendered their lands to the Crown and were re-granted them under English law, started a progression that would change Ireland from an assortment of independent chiefdoms into England's first colony. Moving across Ireland, England and Spain this saga weaves an unforgettable tapestry of passion, divided loyalty, betrayal and courage.
