In a land of poverty and deprivation, the Famine brought misery, devastation and death. One woman dared to dream of a better life. Her name was Bridget, and through her beliefs and determination, her life was about to change.
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.
Her religious convictions and loyalty to her hated husband prevent that love from blossoming, until her husband's criminal deeds and villainous activities eventually cause his demise.
Living through Hope! is a story of survival through a catastrophe that affected millions and resulted in a mass migration from Ireland. It is also a story of hope, belief and, most importantly, love.
