Synopsis
Ishbel, Lady Aberdeen - was she insufferably arrogant or was she a saintly philanthropist? Wife of the Viceroy in the years leading up to the Easter Rising, she worked energetically to improve the health and happiness of the people of the country. She campaigned tirelessly for greater recognition for Irish industry, especially its arts and crafts, and was also a major inspiration behind a multi-faceted attack on tuberculosis, the "White Plague". In their lifetime the Aberdeen's were accused of many things, including the theft of the Irish Crown Jewels, yet despite both personal tragedy and personal vilification, Ishbel became one of the most socially influential people in Ireland during the years of the Home Rule crisis. In this biography, the author aims to paint a picture of a woman who was both liked and loathed whose record cannot be ignored.
