    The third novel by award-winning Irish writer Paul Lynch is set in 1845 during the Potato Famine. Grace is 14 years old when her mother cuts off her hair, dresses her like a boy and sends her off into the countryside where ‘the rain comes yoked to a hooded sun, unfastens and falls like a cloak...’ She is joined by her 12-year-old brother, Colly, and together the two begin a painful trek across a bleak Irish landscape, seeking work and food and encountering unfathomable hardship. This is an enthralling – and often confronting – meditation on starvation, a global phenomenon that continues to afflict the modern world. Lynch’s language is breathtaking – he manages to extract beauty from even the most tragic of settings and situations.
