A remarkable Canadian story of a centuries old "down-home" Acadian - Irish family. This is the true account of an exceptional woman, Margaret Culligan, who gave birth to nine children in tough, thankless circumstances, and through her own grace, guts, ingenuity and strong moral convictions raised them successfully. She is still remembered in Baie de Chaleur as the best organist they've ever had, the best tea-leaf reader, the best hairdresser, and the best baker. Margaret Culligan achieved all this in spite of a drunken abusive husband, suspicious, gossipy neighbors, uncompassionate clergy and a dismissive society. Told with fresh insight, humour, love and admiration, replete with funny anecdotes and moving memories, this is an emotional family story of grit, grief and glory illustrated with the author's full-colour oil paintings. The author is one of Canada's most successful entrepreneurs, co-founder of The Second Cup and recognized for his inspirational an motivational skills.
