Bridie McMahon

At the turn of the twentieth century Ireland is in the throes of depression, work is scarce and families are starving. .Michael McMahon makes the decision to come to England but his vision of a new life is ephemeral. Blighted by the squalid conditions that his family are forced to endure, it is with a heavy heart that he sends his daughter Bridie to work in service as a scullery maid at Oldfell Hall. Will the splendour of this ancestral home erase her memory of the squalor of Baldock Court...or will the young Irish girl's naivety be her downfall? Along with his wife, Mary and young son, Jamie, he watches as the carriage takes her away to face an uncertain future. Romance, love, tragedy, adversity and heartbreak make this a compelling read. You will experience every emotion as you follow Bridie's sometimes traumatic journey culminating at the end of the First World War.
