Recommended for: EVERYONE! (or lovers of irish history)
Read in December, 2006

this book was amazing! a little difficult to get into at the start, but once the story unravels, it's difficult to put down. you get a great idea of what life was like in famine-stricken ireland in the mid-1800s through the back-stories of several intertwining characters. there's a bit of mystery as you're trying to figure out the reasons behind a murder on a boat full of irish emmigrants bound for new york. i love love loved this book and would love to read it all over again.
