A New York Times Bestselling Author. A Newbery Award-winning Author. Many readers of Patricia Reilly Giff's Nory Ryan's Song wondered what happened to Nory, who set out alone on the road to Galway hoping to find her family and sail for Brooklyn, America. Here is the story of that journey from Ireland to America told by both Nory and her neighbor Sean Red Mallon. The passage is harrowing, but Nory and Sean are pulled onward by a single dream: to reach Maggie's door. For ages 8-12.
