The name Grace O'Malley stands forever as a sign and symbol that even in repressive times, no one can be held back from choosing their destiny. A Pirate, a wife, a mother, and a fearsome warrior, Grace carved her name in the annuls of history standing up to lords, ladies, and even Queen Elizabeth as she refused to bow the knee to someone she called "an equal".
A strong woman in a day where men sought to ignore them, a Pirate who fought better than many men, and a fearsome warrior who is quoted in the middle of a battle as having shouted at her son, "Why are you hiding back there? Are you trying to climb back inside my womb?"
Can a woman have a career and a family? Grace did. Can a woman be a Pirate? Grace did. Can an Irishwoman come face to face with an English Queen, hold her own, smuggle a dagger into the meeting, and come out with an agreement? Grace did.
Jump into this concise retelling of Grace, her husbands, sons, battles, and much more.
