Jeremiah's Hunger

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


When Jeremiah Buckley buries his baby sister and his mother in a hillside in County Cork in the midst of An Gorta Mor (the Great Hunger), his grief turns to rebellion and commitment to the land as he works to achieve a dream which will echo over the centuries and as far away as America.

At the height of the Great Hunger of the 1840s, in the town of Ahadallane, north of Cork City, Jeremiah joins in the fight for Ireland´s freedom from British rule and learns firsthand the futility of violence. He watches and works as changes touch the land of his birth, his family, and his relationship with his lifelong friend Michael Riordan who disagrees with him about the path to freedom.

Jeremiah´s journey carries him into the bare heart of his homeland where he endures the evils borne of domination. His hunger isn´t satisfied until he almost loses himself in his quest for land ownership and Ireland´s nationhood.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to the Pluta Cancer Centre.

Jeremiah's Hinger

Elizabeth Osta captures the very spirit of glorious Ireland as her dear grandfather works to preserve his family as well as their land after the wrath of the "Great Hunger".
This book is a must read!
The author visited Ireland nine times to experience the beauty of the land and its' courageous people. While there Ms. Osta was able to visit the family homestead.....the home where the story began. I loved the book and highly recommend it
