What Might Have Been

By Joseph O'Connor. Inspired by the story of Joseph and Bridget Moore, real-life Irish immigrants, as they struggle to cope with life in a New York tenement on the Lower East Side in 1869.

America is not, as anticipated, the land of milk and honey, but it is most certainly the home of the brave.
