Summary

In 1846 a baby girl is born to a young Irish fisherman and his wife. It is the second year of the Great Hunger and the young couple choose to remain in Ireland, while family and friends are leaving. Their story takes place in the fishing village of Blackrock, Dundalk, but with the cities of Liverpool and Sunderland playing a critical part in their lives. Is their love for each other and their homeland enough to sustain them, or will they be forced to join the one and a half million who emigrate? This is the story of a young man's love for his wife and child and the struggle to provide for his family in one of the darkest periods of Ireland's history.

I found this very boring

I am nearly finished with book 1. I just can't get into it. The book has not been character driven, so I did not bind with any of them. The author tells you about the people. There is very little dialog amongst the characters, you only learn about them thru descriptions. Author tells you about Ireland famine, but reader does not feel it. I think it is very boring so will not read the rest of the saga.
