A Classic Rom-Com Of Self Discovery – Roots By Tara O’Connor From Top Shelf

by Oliver MacNamee

Out this Wednesday, the 22nd of November is a new graphic novel from Tara O’Connor charting the journey made by our hero, Tara, after what seems to have been a disastrous year for her. And a trip to Ireland could well be the tonic she needs.

On a journey to the old world—she discovered a whole new world. 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 found wasn’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. 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.
