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.
With an uplifting message of redemption merged into its adventure / romance theme Patrick’s Journey is an historical fiction novel based on the real-life history of one of Australia’s early Irish convict settlers.
The Kindle version of Patrick’s Journey will be on special at 99c from Amazon between 26th and 30th June 2020

Roy considers himself lucky in that many amazing stories of his Irish ancestors were recorded by early armature historians and are still available today. Tales of lost and found love, Irish rebellion, Redcoat conspiracy, prison ship mutiny and reversal of fortune all provided fascinating glimpses of the past.
