Defying the Curse

@ Maria O'Rourke

There was a curse on the ‘Big House’. A local peasant foretold that the family would someday be ‘ruled by a cripple!’ So, when a son was born without any limbs, it seemed the premonition had come true. But nobody could have foretold what the boy would achieve and how his name would go down in history as one of the most remarkable Irishmen to ever live.

An amazing story of 19th century life, love and courage that reached across continents and social classes. This is an unforgettable novel of yearning, perseverance and gritty determination to both inspire and challenge. There is nothing the human spirit cannot overcome.
