Hungry Road

by Marita Conlon-McKenna

Ireland's hopes for freedom are dashed with the arrival of a deadly potato blight that strikes terror in the hearts of its people.

1845. Seamstress Mary Sullivan's dreams of a better future are shattered as she looks out over their ruined crop. Refusing to give in to despair, she must use every ounce of courage and strength to protect her family as they fight to survive.

Dr Dan Donovan is medical officer to the Skibbereen Union. The arrival of "The Hunger" soon brings starving men, women and children crowding into the town and the workhouse, deperate for assistance.

Fr John Fitzpatrick's faith is tested by the suffering that surrounds him as his pleas for help fall on deafs ears.

Inspired by true Irish heroes, The Hungry Road is the heartbreaking story of the Great Irish Famine told by one of Ireland's best-loved writers.
