Synopsis

Quest for the Ruby Ring by Yvonne MacGrory

Yvonne MacGrory's The Secret of the Ruby Rang (Milkweed Editions) was a very popular and successful book. It won Ireland's Bistro Prize for the Best Children's Book of the Year and was filmed for television by Hallmark. Annoyed by criticism that she is self-centered, Emma resolved to think of others. She wants to be of real help to someone, to make a difference in their lives. Can the ruby ring, which she finds in cousin Lucy's bedroom, help her? It can -- but it brings her back to post-famine Ireland, in the shadow of the workhouse, where she befriends two sisters whose mother has just died.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
