The Hunger Year is a gripping historical novel set in New England in the years just following the War of 1812. The story follows the adventurous young Magen Creed, who is forced by hardship to leave her home in northern New York state and head to a farm in Vermont that belongs to her missing father's family. What she finds at Creed Farm is a dynamic and unconventional aunt, a spirited cast of farm hands, and a love that will transform her forever. Unbeknownst to the citizens of this young America, the relentless march of the worst famine of the nineteenth century has begun, and The Hunger Year chronicles Magen's struggle to reconcile her newfound sense of home with the destruction and loss that surrounds her. The novel is intended for older teen readers, but its rich detail can be easily appreciated by audiences of all ages.

From the Back Cover:

Unbeknownst to the citizens of this young America, the relentless march of the worst famine of the nineteenth century has begun. The hunger that drives young Magen's indomitable spirit is both real and metaphorical. Some will survive "the end of days," others will not. But no one will ever forget what has come to be known as the "year without a summer" --or, "The Hunger Year." This novel is intended for older teen readers but its rich detail can be easily appreciated by audiences of all ages.
