I loved this book. Great historical novel about the Irish potato famine and the response by the English. Definitely a one-sided view, damning the English. I could not put this book down; the characters were all ones about whom I cared. The misery of that time is clearly portrayed. Plus it has an element of murder mystery to it. Gaelic words are defined in footnotes.

Pick it up!
