The Equal of God: An Irish Family Saga: An Irish Family Saga Before and After the Famine

If you liked Downton Abbey, the Connor’s story could be Tom's story, the age-old battle of wits between the tenant and the landlord, with survival at stake for the farmers.

Spikes, the Baron's agent is coming to assess the Connors' rent. If he finds anything amiss, he'll tack on a few extra shillings, whether it's deserved or not, whether it goes in the Baron's pocket or his own.

With the flaming red hair of a chieftan, the bull-headed Connor has prepared his six sons and his farm for this grueling day. He’s warned his wife, Rose, to behave and ordered five-year-old Agnes to curtsy to Spikes, then keep out of the way. He’ll take of business with the man. 

Five-year-old Agnes Connor unwittingly steps up to defend her family's honor when their little plot of Celtic land is at risk. Little does she know that her hot-headed action will set into motion a series of events that will resonate for decades to come.  

And so begins the saga of love, loyalty and rivalry that has roots as far back as Strongbow and will ultimately carry Ireland into the future. Will Agnes learn her lesson? Or is the encounter with Spikes preparing her for greater challenges?
