The Secret Scripture

The Secret Scripture

Told through the journals of Roseanne McNulty and her psychiatrist Dr Grene, the story that emerges - of Roseanne’s family in 1930s Sligo - is at once shocking and deeply beautiful. 

Refracted through the haze of memory and retelling, Roseanne’s story becomes an alternative, secret, history of Ireland.

Exquisitely written, it is the story of a life blighted by terrible mistreatment and ignorance, and yet marked still by love and passion and hope.
