Twist of Gold By Michael Morpurgo

Twist of Gold was a very inspiring and suprising book but also very twisty.It is all about the potato famine in Ireland and a poor family who has already lost 3 children and there is only two left.Their dad is away to get a new house and farm land .Their mother is back in Ireland on her death bed.She sends Annie and Sean to do her only dying wish, to give their father the last thing the O’Brian family posses, The golden neclate.They meet many people during their journey,some good,some bad but in the end they get the golden neclate to their father and they soon discover their mother is still alive.
