Irish Crossings is a voyage of love, partings and new beginnings in the time of the Irish Potato Famine. Caitlin and Paddy embark on a journey across a beautiful country overwhelmed with heart-breaking sadness during the time of the Great Hunger. A harrowing winter crossing takes them through the treacherous North Atlantic Ocean. But the slums of New York are not the end of the rainbow they were promised. Through their voyage together they learn the true meaning of the Irish saying, ‘It is in the shelter of each other that people live.’ Buy Book Here!
Throughout our often-tragic history, the stories of immigration emerge from our grandparents, or theirs. Yet through it all, the one thing, the reason you and I are now alive and well in America or across the Irish Diaspora, is the enduring power of love. So it is with this 'Irish Crossings: Paddy and Caitlin.' Their perseverance is so complicated, their love is timeless, and their story, is ours." -
