A true classic. This book portrays the suffering of the Irish people as they starve and the cruelty and insensitivity of the English as they allow the Irish to starve. I found both the strength and courage and the humiliation of one family and their neighbors to be incredibly moving.

Ana excellent historical novel of the Great Potato Famine. The author's skill as a storyteller is at times breathtaking.
