Description

In this stand alone sequel to The Coldest Winter, Eamonn and his family are leaving famine stricken Ireland. They are bound for America, where land is plentiful, and there are jobs for anyone who is prepared to work hard. They set sail full of hope. But will the reality live up to Eamonn's dreams, or are there more hardships and heartbreak in store for them? BLAn intensely movig story, this is historical fiction of the highest calibre BLThough written from the child's point of view, the book never flinches from the reality of the character's situation, and is written with raw, and frequently poignant, honesty. BLTackles issues of race, and the plight of refugees, that are as relevant today as they were 150 years ago.show more
