A riveting historical novel about John Doyle of Wicklow County, Ireland and his journey from a life of destitution to love and freedom in Canada. Many people are familiar with The Great Potato Famine that took place in Ireland during the mid-1800's, but few know the intimate and personal hardships and challenges that so many faced in an attempt to flee their homeland. Inspired by actual events and personal family history, this novel is a love story. Not the usual romantic love story between two people but a love story of a man that is so devoted to his family that he's willing to take extraordinary risks for them. The reader is taken on a courageous journey from County Wicklow, Ireland to Camden, Ontario, Canada. A sweeping and powerful epic adventure, A Journey in Time begins in nineteenth century Shillelagh, Ireland. At the onset of the epic disaster of the Great Potato Famine, John makes a promise to his dying father that he will leave Ireland, his destination the shores of Canada, his objective saving his family from starvation and disease. He must make the wrenching decision to leave his family behind in an Irish workhouse built for the destitute not knowing how he is going to accomplish his goal of finding land in Canada and bringing his family to safe shores. With profound determination and unswerving devotion to his family, John faces the future alone with grace and courage. Share with him the loves of his life and the unforgettable individuals that make John's journey possible in this epic story of love, compassion, courage and determination that brings to life crucial and little-known chapters in Irish and Canadian history.
