The Extraordinary Adventures of Foundling Mick
The Extraordinary Adventures of Foundling Mick by French novelist, Jules Verne (1828-1905), was first published in 1893, but then 'lost' until 2008.
Set in 19th century Ireland, the story follows Mick from one bad ‘placement’ to another until he finds safe haven with a kind couple in Kerry and financial success in Dublin.
Apparently, Verne never travelled to Ireland (although he visited Scotland) but he had considerable respect for the Irish.
