“A marvellously powerful book. An unusually effective story which combines sensitivity, realism and horror.”

“History doesn’t get more real than this.”
From the Back Cover
Colin and Prill are looking forward to their holiday in Ireland. But almost from the moment they arrive, Colin feels sick from an awful smell, so powerful and horrible that it seems to be rising from the land of the dead. At the same time, Prill is visited by a strange creature creeping into her dreams.
An atmospheric ghost story, inspired by the Irish potato famine.
