Product Description

“Single mother Maggie Carroll longs to go to Ireland, but two young daughters and financial troubles take precedence until she enters a contest on the internet that leads her closer to her dreams than she ever imagined. Irishman Galen Devlin, working the tourism trade in post-9/11 New York City, is a lonely bachelor longing for love. Both have a distant shared past that includes Thomas Terrance O’Toole, a modern-day leprechaun with matchmaking on his mind. The Irish ballad “Danny Boy” often brings tears to the eyes of those longing for home. Join Maggie and Galen in The Pipes Are Calling, as they share a homeward journey that includes the true saga of the Molly Maguires, a 19th-century group of impoverished Irish immigrants struggling for labor rights against the rough backdrop of the Pennsylvania hard coal industry. And listen…the bittersweet strains of the pipes may be calling you.”
