Brand-new standalone from the wonderful Anne Doughty set in Ireland during the Great Famine of 1845

County Armagh, 1845. Married to the local blacksmith, young Sarah Hamilton spends her days looking after John and his apprentices at the forge, and her happiness is strengthened by the steady love of her husband and the beautiful green landscape of her home on Drumilly Hill. But when tragedy strikes, her life is changed forever. As the crops across Ireland begin to fail and the textile industry struggles to adapt to new methods, Sarah isn't the only one enduring hardships. Along with her friends and neighbours, Sarah lives through loss and disappointment, but ultimately discovers courage, love and the longevity of hope.
