Based on the true story of an Irish rebel around the turn of the 18th century Patrick’s Journey contains an uplifting message of redemption merged into its adventure / romance theme. Readers will follow Patrick as he is torn from his life’s love and homeland then transported to a penal colony on the other side of the world. Against the odds, Patrick emerges from despair to resurrect his life and love in a new land.
Patrick’s Journey could be described as simply an entertaining “romance / adventure” novel, but the story goes deeper than that. The “Journey” in the story is twofold; there is the physical journey from one mode of existence in Ireland to a completely different one in Australia and the emotional/spiritual journey that accompanies such drastic changes in Patrick’s world.
