AN INCONVENIENT VOICE is the true story of Maggie Houlihan, who chose poverty over an abusive marriage and escaped to a small coastal town where she would ascend to become the most polarizing public figure in its history.
Its the story of a remarkable woman written by her husband after her death. Its the tale of two strangers who married for the sake of a Green Card, then unexpectedly fell in love and stayed together another twenty-eight years.
Its the story of Maggies universal compassion, her inability to say no to anyone she found suffering, especially the dozens of animals she rescued and homed or adopted.
Its the tale of her election to city council in a seaside village and her unrelenting fight to preserve the town from the forces of greed and self-serving power, in spite of libel and death threats she received along the way.
Its a story that stands as a testimony to the triumph of good over evil. But most of all, its a love letter, a tribute to Maggie Houlihans amazing character by the man who knew her best.
