Living through Hope! Set in the Nineteenth Century, and based on factual family history, the story follows the life, emigration and romances of Bridget from childhood and throughout her life.
As she grows up in the beautiful hills of Connemara, Ireland; she is unprepared for an enforced marriage, followed rapidly by the ravages of the Potato Famine. Forced to flee from the country of her birth, she finds love for the first time in England.
