Foster child Tom Mullen explores the outskirts of a mass grave discovered in the local school yard. He is then pulled through space and time to arrive at an Irish village in 1847 just in time to save his ancestor. Amid famine and disease Tom finds a family. As he leaps back and forth in time, Tom must decide where he truly belongs. Heneghan's work makes the horror of the Irish Potato Famine come alive. Gerald Doyle's voice and varied accents add to the flavor of the novel. His reading will keep listeners rooting for Tom. As an added bonus, the ending has a lovely, unforgettable twist. J.M.P.
