Synopsis:

Famine Ghost: England's Genocide of the Irish,/i>

Famine Ghost is a book of historical fiction, the story of the Irish Famine (1845-1850) as seen through the eyes of young Johnjoe Kevane. He and his family are evicted from their cottage in Dingle. Disdaining the option of life in the local workhouse, the Kevanes sail in a coffin ship to Grosse Ile in Canada. Johnjoe keeps a diary of his family's suffering in the dark bowels of the overcrowded ship. When his parents die of ship fever-typhus-Johnjoe returns home to exact revenge on the landlord, Major Mahon.

"O'Keefe has delicately balanced history with touching humanity and humor. He has provided readers with a vivid tale, surprising in all the right ways, and an unabashed glimpse into the shocking truth of the Irish Famine. A masterful read cover to cover." --Sara Wolski, literary agent

"Famine Ghost captures the realities of the 1845-1850 Great Irish Famine and is filled with valuable research on the tragedy. An imaginative and thoughtful author, O'Keefe has a real gift for the dialog and pace of language of 19th century Ireland. His vivid portrayal and historical perspective bring the hardships of Ireland's troubles to our awareness in the 21st century, like no other book." --Helen Gallagher, Computer Clarity, www.cclarity.com
