It is the late 1880s and the Great Famine has ravaged Ireland The potatoes are black and rotten and the people have nothing to eat Eily Michael and Peggy are alone in their cottage Their parents went out in search of work and food but never returned Now the children must fend for themselves Desperate to avoid being sent to the workhouse they set out on a journey to find their great aunts On their journey they encounter the devastation caused by famine people scrabbling for food abandoned children soup kitchens beggars disease wild dogs death Led by twleve year old Eily the children use all their strength and ingenuity to survive and find their way to Castletaggart

    This is one of the books from my childhood I was in fourth class when our teacher first read this to us I fell in love From there I bough all three books and read them myself To this day I can still remember reading these books and this book was what got me hooked It's my favourite in the trilogy The book is based in the time of the great famine of Ireland It's about three kids who fight for their lives and are determined to find their relatives For a children's book it has a lot of tragedy The saddest scene for me view spoilerwas when baby Bridget died hide spoiler
