SOMETHING IN THE BLACK PIT WAS CALLING AND REACHING OUT TO ME, PULLING ME...Tom stumbles into a pit in an excavated schoolyard and finds himself mysteriously transported back to rural Ireland in the grip of the potato famine of the 1840s. A foster child with no family in his 'real' life in 1970s Liverpool, in Ireland he finds himself taken in by a generous, though desperately poor, family whose eldest son is Tom's spitting image. Tom's intriguing life develops in parallel in both settings, creating an engrossing and affecting story for readers of 11+.show more
