I had never even heard of the famine that took place in Ireland about 1845- 1852. I now know when it took place, where it took place, how it happened, and some of the beliefs from then. Being a fan of 1 Direction, I know a bit of Irish history. I never knew about this Great Famine until the local librarian recommended this book. Everyone seems to know what kind of books I like, and this was definitely one book that blew me away.
