Ireland in the 1840s is devastated by famine. When tragedy strikes their family, Eily, Michael and Peggy are left to fend for themselves. Starving and in danger of the dreaded workhouse, they escape. Their one hope is to find the great-aunts they have heard about in their mother’s stories. With tremendous courage they set out on a journey that will test every reserve of strength, love and loyalty they possess. This beautifully packaged collection showcases all three books in the Children of the Famine Trilogy; Under the Hawthorn Tree (winner of the International Reading Association Award), Wildflower Girl (winner of the Bisto Merit Award for Historical Fiction) and Fields of Home.
