In 19th century Ireland - just one generation after the Great Famine had left a million dead and scattered the Irish across the globe - a new crop failure threatened the land and its people.

On the cover of this remarkable book – THE COUNTRY OF OUR DREAMS by Mary O’Connell – Stephanie Dowrick is quoted as saying “I loved it.” I totally endorse her statement as I too loved it. You don’t have to be Irish, you don’t have to be familiar with the Irish Land League, all you have to be is a reader who loves a great novel, which this is. Her writing is simply wonderful, the plot highly original and above all a true page turner. I highly recommend this fantastic book.
