The Lovereading4Kids comment
A novel that takes the reader on an epic journey through famine, hope and survival by a much-loved award-winning author. Set in both Ireland and America this is a story with cliff hanger endings for every chapter. Perfect for keen readers and reluctant readers alike. A real gem.
In addition to our Lovereading expert opinion for Twist of Gold a small number of children were lucky enough to be invited to review this title. Here's a taster....'an amazing, emotional, unforgettable book, which in some parts made me feel like crying...one of the best books I’ve ever read!'
