An intimate glimpse into the lives of a family of seven sisters and four brothers, children of a Church of Ireland Rector. They all grew up in Ardrahan, a small township in County Galway, in the last decade of Queen Victoria's reign. "Yonder is the Gong" is a memoir of those years written by one of the sisters, Georgina Trotter ("Septima"), which takes us back to what reads now like a charmed world.
