Rate this:
By 1845, Nory Ryan's family has lived on Maidin Bay on the west coast of Ireland for generations. Maidin Bay is a beautiful place, full of magic and song, but life there is hard. Every year Nory's family plants potatoes while Da sails away on a fishing boat to earn the rent money for Lord Cunningham. The English lord is bent upon forcing the Irish from their land so that he can tumble the cottages and clear the fields for grazing sheep. Many people have left Maidin Bay forever. Nory's own beloved sister Maggie sets off for Brooklyn, in America, and Nory dreams of a time when the Ryans will all live there together. But a terrible blight attacks the potatoes. No crop means starvation. And Da does not return when he usually does. Nory must summon the courage and ingenuity to find food, to find hope, to find a way to help her family survive.
