about

Irish singing star Daniel O'Donnell's mother, Julia, grew up on a remote island off the northwest coast of Ireland, going barefoot and doing hard labor as child during the poverty-stricken 1920s. The hard work continued through her teenage years as she picked potatoes in the fields and traveled to Scotland to gut fish in the ports. After she married, Julia's beloved husband--Francie--was forced to work away from home for months on end. Physically demanding, the work eventually took its toll and Julia found herself widowed and penniless with five children. In this inspiring story of triumph over adversity, Julia explains how she battled through this dark period by knitting sweaters to support her family. In an amazing twist of fate, this hard-working woman and dedicated mother watched from the wings as her offspring flourished. Her daughter Margaret and son Daniel went on to achieve fame and fortune as chart-topping singers. Poignant, warm, and laced with great humor, this is a gripping story of hardship, sacrifice, and maternal love.
