Review Text

  • By Norman Weston on July 3, 2013

    I have read many books on the subject of the trials and tribulations of the Irish people and the Catholic religion and am mightilly pleased when a work embodies a profound appreciation for unbiased 'detail', the meat of true history - the facts. Simon Loftus's history of his own family I found to be a well-paced and most engaging work but proof in the pudding, as it were, that, when digging into family history, one cannot leave out anything that may be disagreeable to the palette or, in this case, the pen, as one will be found out. Nothing is left out in this thoroughly enjoyable history of a family in pole position amongst the Protestant ascendancy, these castle builders, but it is a history which interweaves the tiniest detail of manners, farming and bodilly habits into the loftiest of plots in church and politics amongst the landed folk, from the charming eccentric to the bloody minded manipulators. I may not read this book again in its entirety but already consider the 'The Invention of Memory' to have an important place amongst my reference work. Thank you.
