  • This book is a rewriting of a diary written by a young Irish schoolteacher during the famine in Ireland He tells of the conditions in Ireland that force people to immigrate to Canada, of the horrible conditions on the ships that brought them over, and of the many that died of plague and fever both on the ships and at the landing He also writes of his marriage to Aileen and his love for her Very interesting portrayal of Ireland and Canada s dark history A quick read.
