Kitty McCarthy's plight in the Potato Famine is heartrendingly described and it really brought home to me how absolutely horrendous those times were for the families who lived through them. Also a good history lesson.
Maria's story in the present day as she searches for clues as to what happened to Kitty is equally absorbing.
The descriptive passages of the wonderful scenery of Ireland were so well done I felt I was walking there myself.
I was hooked from page one and couldn't put it down.
Keep them coming Kath and don't keep us waiting too long for the next one!
Light, easy read, as well as interesting.
Thanks for a great read! I'll definitely be looking from more from this author!
Jumping between the Hunger in 1840's Ireland and the present day we are introduced to Kitty and her family during the famine, and Maria her great great great granddaughter in the here and now.
Maria's search for what happened to Kitty and her children leads us to a sometimes harrowing description of 19th century Ireland, but one that leads to a fantastic picture of the lengths a mother will go to to protect her family.
