Legacy of Hunger
First off, I love the book cover. This book gave a unique outlook of Ireland and the struggles it went through for self governance. It also tells of Valentina’s search for her grandmother’s family, and her little jaunt of falling in love with someone that was already taken. She had many adventures, such as; her trek into the magical realm through the stones and brooch; her mishap with hungry, angry people suffering from near starvation and those being mistreated by the army of the day.
This story of tells of her adventures both on sea and on land, and most of all, her growth from a young lady filled with lofty restriction of class, to one that found her way and friendship. She became a champion for equality and a helper for those in lesser positions. This book was well crafted and shows Valentina’s emergence from her social cocoon. There was one instance of a typo, where the word ‘to’ was left out but it didn’t take away from the tale.
