I had bought the third book in this series when I was in Ireland not realizing it was the third in a series of three. So later when I started to read that one, I wanted to read the first two first. Even though they are meant for children, I enjoyed them very much. They are great historical fiction After I finished reading them, I loaned them to a friend and she enjoyed them very much, also, and wish we could read more by this author.
As mentioned in my previous review this series is great for young and older readers alike.
I am reading it with my 8 year old and secretly staying 2 chapters ahead to make sure it was
appropriate for her. I am glad I did because of the deaths on the ship which although we know
happened I am glad I skipped over that section as to not put such a heartbreaking image in her head.
We are half way through but I have already finished as I couldn't stop after she fell asleep. I am
glad it once again ended on a happy note and look forward to the third book....once she catches up to me.
Recently visited Ireland and this book was part of a must own series. Great condition! Thank you!
I loved this book. You really feel for Peggy and fall into her story. She is an amazing character. Pitty it ends so abruptly.
Bought this for my daughter, she loves it, she read it last year at school and was so into the story she wanted it to keep she is reading it for the second time

The book made me cry many a time.It did'nt take me long to read as it was hard to put down.I thought it was good but Under the Hawthorn Tree was better.I am looking forward to reading Fields of Home.
