From the Publisher:
On January 21, 1851, Maura and Patrick O'Connell are driven by a cruel English landlord from their impoverished village in Ireland. Their hope is to join their father in America, "The Promised Land". In the seething streets of Liverpool, the children share a fate played out against a cast of detectives, scalawags, and scoundrels worthy of any Victorian novel.

Praise

Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"The suspense and the shifting among various points of view are expertly deployed but do become slightly mechanical towards the last pages; you still won't be able to stop reading." - Roger Sutton February 1996
