A fast paced historical fiction novel about a horrible potato famine in Ireland in the mid 1800's. A young girl, Nory, sets off to join her family for a voyage to America, where they hope to have a better life. Her neighbor and friend, Sean, has also separately set off for the docks. Not only are the characters trying not to starve before reaching Brooklyn, where Nory's sister and brother in law are living, but they are faced with many tragedies to endure. The story is seen through Nory's and Sean's eyes. A true page turner, the reader will find themselves wanting to see what happens next and how their lives will change.
