Wildflower Girl by Marita Conlon-McKenna, P. J. LynchThe second book in the famine trilogy At seven, Peggy made a terrifying journey through famine-stricken Ireland. Now thirteen, and determined to make a new life for herself, she sets off alone across the Atlantic to America. Will she ever see her family again? An extraordinary story of courage, independence and adventure The other books in the Famine trilogy are Under the Hawthorn Tree and Fields of Home.
'The same good strong writing as is evidenced in Under the Hawthorn Tree'
'Peggy's a survivor, but there's little sentimentality. The hardship, fear, and loneliness are always there, as well as the promise of something better.'
'Marita Conlon-McKenna has obviously done her research properly, and the authenticity, together with a lively story, makes the book a pleasure to read.'
