"In The Ghosts of Riots Past, Morrow presents an insightful, imagined memoir - a unique account of Free Derry history from the perspective of a Knights of Malta First-Aider. The blend of fiction founded in fact makes this writing a powerful tool for anyone seeking to understand the human story around key events in the Bogside’s political history.’ Sue Divin, author of novels Truth Be Told and Carnegie Shortlisted Guard Your Heart.
“The Ghosts of Riots Past provides a richly evocative look at some of Derry’s darkest moments, where not only do we see the horrors that were inflicted upon this city but the courage, warmth and strength of our people. An imagined memoir, shining a light on the contribution of the often-overlooked Knights of Malta first aid volunteers, this is a story of humanity and bravery, deftly interwoven with the wonderful Derry dark humour. This is an important contribution to our city’s narrative”. Claire Allan - Bestselling Author of 'Her Name Was Rose, 'Apple of My Eye', and 'The Nurse'.
‘An evocative, richly detailed retelling of some of the most pivotal moments in the city’s history from a new perspective. Reflecting the courage and personal sacrifices of the city’s Order of Malta volunteers, among others, First-Aider Martha is a wonderfully realised character brought to life with real warmth and skill. A huge achievement.’ Brian McGilloway - Sunday Times and New York Times bestselling author of DS Lucy Black thrillers and Inspector Devlin mysteries
