Amelia

The year is 1914 and Amelia Pim will soon be thirteen. There are rumours of war and rebellion, and Dublin is holding its breath for major, dramatic events. But all that matters to Amelia is what she will wear to her birthday party ...

''Amelia gives a tremendous insight into the way things were for the well off and the not quite so well off. It presents clearly the difficulties that arise when one is suddenly thrown into a new situation. But Amelia learns fast. A well-written and sensitive story.'' Books Ireland
