Publisher's Summary

Nory Ryan's family has lived on Maidin Bay on the west coast of Ireland for generations, raising a pig and a few chickens, planting potatoes, getting by. Every year, Nory's father goes away on a fishing boat and returns with the rent money for the English lord who owns their cottage and fields, the English lord bent upon forcing the Irish from their land so he can tumble the cottages and clear the fields for grazing. Times are never easy on Maidin Bay, but this year, a terrible blight attacks the potatoes. No crop means starvation. Twelve-year-old Nory must summon the courage and ingenuity to find food, to find hope, to find a way to help her family survive.

Nory Ryan's Song

I liked this book because while listening to it I could learn something about the past and wonder at how much love Nory Ryan had to offer

A spellbinding tale of which Americans don't know.

I was hesitant to read this book because I am not usually a fan of historical fiction. Thankfully for the author, I was required to read it for class. This book not only entertaining, it is enchanting and gives you first-hand experience of what it means to live through a famine. At just under four hours, it is a really easy listen.
