Nory Ryan's family has lived on Maidin Bay on the west coast of Ireland for generations, raising a pig and a few chickens, planting potatoes, getting by. Every year Nory's father goes away on a fishing boat and returns with the rent money for the English lord who owns their cottage and fields, the English lord bent upon forcing the Irish from their land so he can tumble the cottages and clear the fields for grazing. Times are never easy on Maidin Bay, but this year, a terrible blight attacks the potatoes. No crop means starvation. Twelve-year-old Nory must summon the courage and ingenuity to find food, to find hope, to find a way to help her family survive. From the Hardcover edition.

Patricia Reilly Giff, April 26, 1935 - Patricia Reilly Giff was born on April 26, 1935, in Brooklyn, New York and grew up in Saint Albans. She knew she wanted to be a writer, even as a little girl. After high school, Giff attended Marymount College, earning her Bachelor's of Arts in Education. She also earned a Master's of Arts from St. John's University as well as a Professional Diploma in Reading and a Doctorate of Humane Letters from Hofstra University. After she graduated from college, Giff began teaching at the suggestion of her Dean at Marymount. She taught in the public schools in New York City until 1960 and then in the public schools in Elmont, New York from 1964 til 1971. She then became a reading consultant before finally, at the age of 40, deciding to write a book. Giff also worked as an educational consultant for Dell Yearling and Young Yearling Books, and as an advisor and instructor to aspiring writers. She is the author of over 60 children's books, as well as a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers.
