1847 – Ireland. The potato famine enters its second year, as British landlords raise rents and tumble cottages, leaving Irish families homeless and overcome by hunger and disease. Kit Byrne, a young girl of fourteen, will do everything she can to save her family. But will it cost her soul?
"Ride with the powerful lilt of the style
and you'll feel the terrible heartbeat
of old famine Ireland herself!
Pignat is a winner!"
--Brian Doyle, Author of Boy O'Boy and Pure Spring
