By A Customer on 17 Oct. 2001
Format: Paperback
This book is fantatic, because before it I had never even heard of the hunger in Ireland, and now I know a lot. Phyllis, even though she is a lot better off than most families in her area still struggles with the rest of them when the potato famine comes, and she also has to deal with the acceptance of love and death at the same time. It is also good because it tells you about the conflict between the two religions and the English government, and it made me understand more about Irish history, and encouraged me to read more books about it. This is one of my favourite books, I really recommend it or any other of the My Story ones to anyone.

Excellent! I love these books this was one of the best from my collection,
I think they should be introduced to the school curriculum.
I didn't have any knowledge or understanding of the hunger in Ireland, this has taught me the lot.

Phylly is a fourteen-year-old girl living in Ireland in 1845. Her family is better off than most poor Irish farm families. Phylly even has a job as a maid at the landlord's estate. But when a terrible disease attacks the potato crop, Phylly's family suffers as much as everyone else. Phylly fights to keep her spirits up through her family's struggle for survival and even experiences the wonder of first love. I reccomend this book to fans of historical novels.

O my gosh - I totally emphathised with the characters: I felt deep sorrow for Phyllis and enjoyed reading her romances, I was sad for her family who were ill and distraught by the terrible potato disease and I felt sorry for ireland, during such difficult times.
Join teenager Phyllis Mc Cormack who gets a job and enjoy indulge in a very emotional yet heart warming novel. Lose yourself in the excellent storyline, marvel at the way Phyllis perceives every day life and fall head over heels in love with her hearthrob. This book is a must read as the descriptions are amazing and you can easily lose yourself with such a fantastic book. Utterly stunning...

Although this book is aimed at teenage readers it's also a very worthwhile and interesting read for adults. I learned a lot about the Irish potato famine from reading this book and really enjoyed the enthralling story that unfolded of Phyllis and her family's struggle to survive.
Written in the form of a teenage girl's diary you really get a feel for how frightening it must have been to live through them harrowing and bleak times.
