Children as young as seven or eight were sold for fixed periods by their impoverished parents to farmers who worked them to the bone,treating them often as little more than cattle. Often worse. THE DONEGAL WOMAN is based on a true story of the authors own grandmother. Born to the poorest of Protestant farmers in the hills of Donegal, Margaret was hired out as a child, raped by her master, and then, pregnant, forced to marry another man many times her age. But Margaret survived in a silent world of her own, driven by her passionate determination to do right by her children.

Reviving the tradition of three of Ulsters great radical writers, Peadar o Donnell, Patrick MacGill and Sam Hannah Bell, this author, in his first novel, has captured the authentic voice of a woman of extraordinary spirit.
