Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ireland in the mid-1800s was primarily a population of peasants, forced to live on a single, moderately nutritious crop: potatoes. Suddenly, in 1846, an unknown and uncontrollable disease turned the potato crop to inedible slime, and all Ireland was threatened. Index.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 313-333) and index.

Thoroughly researched and extremely detailed, the truth printed in this novel is often heartwrenching, but gives a very clear understanding of the conflict between Britain and Ireland, both during the famine years and today. Gallagher follows several people throughout different times, giving the reader a more personal insight to what was experienced. My only disappointment with this book was that it ended. Once I began reading it, I barely put it down until I finished.
