Introduction to A Life Before: Extract for Patrons

My latest patron-only extract from “A Life Before” is the very first pages, which will soon be on their way to the editor to produce a sample of the first chapter. They introduce the key characters who will drive the Gonne-Yeats series, More Than A Muse: the activist Maud Gonne and her daughter, Iseult; the poet WB Yeats, and Rosy's own Irish family including her cousin Lily, who was murdered by a bullet through the heart “by one who knew what he was doing”.
