The Rag Maiden

Libby Ashworth / Katy Sobey
Ireland 1848. The potato famine has left the Cavanah family destitute. Kitty and Peter manage to secure tickets for America - seeking hope in an unknown land. But still fortune will not favour them. On a terrifying crossing of the Irish Sea Peter vanishes and with him their tickets. Now Kitty and her young family are stranded in Liverpool - with not a penny to their name. Facing prejudice and distrust they move to Blackburn where the welcome is no warmer but Kitty at least can gather rags and scraps to exchange for a coin or two. She refuses to give up hope - of finding Peter of getting to America. But Kitty knows they are just one bad day away from the evils of the workhouse . . .
