In a green and pleasant land, behind green and pleasant doors there lies the secrets and hardships of normal life. Margaret's cruel life, cruel husband and unforgiving religion are just such a secret, tortured and driven to despair, her tested faith and tortured morals taking her to the edge of sanity for a better view of life. Bless Us and Save Us is a tale of Irish life, Irish women and family bonds and how far a mother is prepared to go to keep those values when others seek to use them against her. The lies of a marriage brought violence and alcoholism, the cruelty towards her children brought strength, her Catholic faith brought hope, her injuries brought hatred and fear. With her loss the little hopes gave her the purpose to survive when all else in her world seemed lost and hopeless. This is the true story of how one woman survived life's trials in a way she never believed she could.
