Roots by Tara O’Connor
Trade Paperback – Top Shelf – Nov 2017 – 149 pages
She went back to the Old World to find her roots, never suspecting that she would lay down new ones.
After a messy year of heartbreak and setbacks, Tara sets off to Ireland in search of clues to her family’s ancestry, but what she finds isn’t at all what she expected. Some of it has to do with the lack of records, but a lot has to do with John, the charming cartoonist she met on Twitter. An original graphic novel wrapped in real family history and set amongst the natural beauty of the Irish countryside, Roots is a classic romantic-comedy adventure and a page-turning account of a young woman finding herself.
