Dreams of Hope by Lily O'Connor
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


A sequel to her successful first book, 'Can Lily O'Shea Come Out to Play?', this sparkling memoir is a remarkable personal account of the emigrant lives of one Irish couple amongst the hundreds upon thousands forced to leave their homeland in the 1950s. The book centres on Lily O'Connor's married life with Paddy in Dublin, Luton and Australia, and at its heart is the story of a man who always wanted too much and a woman whose resilience saw her coping courageously, often on her own, with a large family and difficult circumstances. 'Dreams of Hope' is a funny, upbeat story of one feisty, indomitable woman's life in three countries with a man torn between the contentment of family life and the pursuit of ambition and adventure.
