Item Description...
This is a remarkable story of the victory of spirit over adversity. Kevin Dalton spent his life from 1934 when he was two until he was sixteen in orphanages. From an early age he wanted to be ordained and this is the story of how this ambition waxed and waned through all the vicissitudes of early disadvantage. He arrived in Dublin aged 18 with only a primary education and without a job. 'This was 1951 when there were few jobs to be had. Unemployment was endemic and thousands of people were emigrating to find work ... I pounded the footpaths of Dublin calling to shops and businesses looking for work ... I hid my torn trousers and my scruffy clothes with a long overcoat. After two months of no success I was demoralised to the point that I considered going to England.' He eventually got work and qualified as a miller, but still had to confront his lifelong ambition to be ordained. While working during the day he set about studying for the Trinity College entrance exam. After much effort, he eventually passed, and entered Trinity in 1961.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
triumph over adversity  Sep 16, 2003
The is a heart warming story of a person who started life in an orphanage in Ireland. Unlike Angela's ashes, this book has no ill feelings towards the events and people that caused the hardships. Only gratitude for those who helped ease the pain and assisted on the path to 'things that could never be'.
I grew up in Ireland and feel this book more accurately reflects the atmosphere and spirit of those times.
It is refreshing to share the life of someone whose life has been dedicated to the betterment of mankind without regards for personal benefit.
If you want to read a book that will leave you feeling better than you did before - this is the book for you.
