About this audiobook

In 1846 a baby girl is born to a young Irish fisherman and his wife. It is the second year of the Great Hunger and the young couple choose to remain in Ireland, while family and friends are leaving. Their story takes place in the fishing village of Blackrock, Dundalk, but with the cities of Liverpool and Sunderland playing a critical part in their lives. Is their love for each other and their homeland enough to sustain them, or will they be forced to join the one and a half million who emigrate? This is the story of a young man's love for his wife and child and the struggle to provide for his family in one of the darkest periods of Ireland's history.

    Sorry to say, the narration was horrible. Hard to get through.

    It was like a short story. I would like to have more depth of the characters, their feelings and thoughts. But overall it was a nice narration and the reader had a great pronunciation of the Irish people.

    I adored this so much, such a touching story that I know so many can relate to having ancestors from Ireland - narrator was perfection! a glimpse into what Ireland and her people endured & how strong they were through it all.
