Synopsis

The Coldest Winter by Elizabeth Lutzeier

It is 1846. In Ireland the potato harvest has failed. English soldiers are turning families out of their homes, and the roads are full of people with nowhere to go. Eamonn and his family must struggle to stay alive in spite of the cold and famine, and try to build a new life for themselves. But first they must survive the coldest winter Ireland has ever known. This is a heartbreaking story that is an emotionally raw, and painfully honest account of an episode in history, which is of huge political significance even today.
