Introducing the cover of Ròs Fiadhaich, a Scottish Gaelic graphic novel written by award-winning Halifax romance novelist Nicola R. White and translated by Nat Harrington. Coming in September 2021!

Set against the backdrop of London and rural Ireland in 1790, Ròs Fiadhaich [Wild Rose] reimagines a haunting Irish folktale. The story of Eliza Day is a tale of love and revenge, with side helpings of class conflict, religious intolerance, and the secret societies that became common in 18th-century Ireland. When Eliza is seduced and betrayed by a wealthy English lover, she vows to seek revenge and enlists the help of a witch. But as she soon finds out, the restrictive society in which she lives has no place for defiant, damaged women who break with convention. With the help of Adam Stone, a free Black man, Eliza has a chance to make a new life for herself after the loss of her innocence – but to do so, she will have to be braver than she could ever have imagined.
