About the Book

An unforgettable tale of struggle, adventure and hope from War Horse author and former Children's Laureate, Michael Morpurgo.

‘There’s a plague, a fever, call it what you will, sweeping this country, and it’s coming closer all the time.’

Sean and Annie have one chance to escape the potato famine and plague in Ireland. They survive a shipwreck and land safely in America searching for their father. But their new land is one of hardship and they live in poverty on the streets of Boston. However, their adventure is just beginning.

Sean and Annie have one chance to escape the potato famine in Ireland, but they must leave their dying mother behind. They travel in search or their father, across rough seas and shipwrecks, to a new land of hardship and poverty: America. The streets of Boston are not quite lined with gold as the stories say. It’s a long and dangerous trip, but their family’s survival depends on it. And the journey there is only the beginning …
