The Tender Twig (Frances Henking) is a novel based on fact. After King Zedekiah of Judah was blinded and taken in chains to Babylon, and his sons executed, his two young daughters fled to Egypt with Jeremiah the prophet and Baruch the scribe. After the younger girl, Scota, married an Egyptian prince, the older daughter (and now heir), Tea Tephi, went with Jeremiah and Baruch to Ireland, where she married Prince Eochaidh, a descendant of the northern tribes of Israel.
