The Directory of All Things Irish in Maine

About Us

“All people of Irish descent will find this historical novel a must-read”.

Johanna Cashman and John McCarthy, along with over a million others, immigrated to America to escape a devastating famine. They left behind family members who faced starvation to come to a land that would give them a new opportunity for a good life. They were soon made aware that they were not welcome in this new land and that every day would present a new struggle for survival. This historical novel brings the reader through the heartwarming story of a family that overcomes adversity to thrive in America while detailing the movement in the country they left to find its own independent place in the world.
