From this experience Elizabeth decided to convert,… Mehr dazu

The reader can almost smell the stench of the blighted potatoes, feel the roll and hear the sounds of the immigrant ships and sympathize with the rebels while understanding the squires too.

Author Joyce McDonald skillfully works the native dialogue and background into the story. I… Mehr dazu
