About the book:

The acclaimed biography of Mary Ann McCracken, sister of the executed United Irishman Henry Joy McCracken and throughout her long life a committed and dynamic champion of Belfast's poor.
'A woman of strong character and generous sympathies, with a ready pen and a forthright mind, she was solidly embedded in that vigorous, industrious, intellectually alert middle class which played such a decisive part in moulding British and Ulster life. She suffered deeply from the tragic consequences of rebellion. But she was unbroken, and after the saddening days of 1798 and 1803 she threw herself with enthusiastic energy into living a many-sided life dominated by family affection and humanitarian zeal... Miss McNeill brings to her task a sympathetic understanding of her subject's ideals and feelings and keen awareness of Belfast, the growing city, pulsating with energy, in which Mary Ann McCracken's life was spent.'
