Winter is closing in and Ireland is in the grip of famine. Early one October morning, Grace’s mother snatches her from sleep, brutally cuts her hair and tells her: ‘You are the strong one now.’ 

 

Her mother fits her up in men’s clothes and casts her out, as she is no longer safe at home. With her younger brother Colly in tow, she sets off on a remarkable journey against the looming shadow of her country’s darkest hour.
