You know, when you keep reading, thinking something will strike you I read The Taster by this author last year and it made my 2018 favorites list So I had high expectations for this one It felt like the story was just staying in one place for far too long before things began to move along I think I was suffering along with the farmers.Thanks to NG publisher for my review copy flag 52 likesLike

could give it than 5 stars It is a beautiful, well written, fantastically researched historical fiction novel about a rarely discussed time in Irish history the Famine of the mid 1800s I have read a lot about this time period because most of my maternal ancestors immigrated to America from Ireland during this time period Even though I have read a lot about it, this book gave me information about the Irish farmers and what they went through during this terrible time.The novel begins in 1845 in County Mayo where Briana lives with her father Brian, the agent to a wealthy English landowner As the land agent, Brian is responsible for collecting rent from the tenant farmers who grow crops on the land Tenant farmers sell the oats and rye they grow to pay rent to Sir Thomas, surviving on the potatoes that flourish in the remaining scraps of land When the potato crop fails, the farmers are left with no food and no way to survive Briana feels great compassion for the farmers and has been in love with Rory, one of the local tenant farmers, since they were children As the hunger and disease spread over Ireland, Briana and Rory work to make sure that their families survive despite the odds against them.Briana was a wonderfully written character The reader could feel her pain and compassion as the drought worsened and I must admit that I cried along with her several times Her love of her home and the beauty of the Irish countryside is so strong that I consider Ireland to be one of the main characters in the book I know that it made me want to take another trip to Ireland to see the beauty of it This is a book that I won t soon forget.Thanks to the publisher for a copy of this book to read and review All opinions are my own flag 6 likesLike see review View 1 comment Janice rated
