    1. "Lord Kirkle's Money" picks right up where "The Escape from Home" left off, and while the Author offers a sort of recap in the first few chapters, it isn't a very good idea to let much time lapse between reading this one and its prequel. But if a Reader is unfortunate enough to do so, Avi's hundreds of characters are not so easily forgotten, and it won't take long to recall the important things from Book One.This installment offers up a number of new characters along with the old, each one addin [...]


    2. Avi is such a good author. This book will keep you in suspense throughout the story and end with a 'correct' ending.



    3. Read this one with a bit of chip on the ole shoulder. I was upset that the first book doesn't really end. The frist book ends with a character hoping he will be let out of a crate. The second book begins not with chapter one but, with chapter 75. This makes book two not a sequel but, a continuation of the frist book. Though it would had made a long book it would of been more honest to publish book one and two together.The other problem I had with book two is that I was getting tired of the story [...]


    4. The book plunges into the next chapter after the first book "Escape from Home", and as it had been a couple of years since I read the first book, I could not remember some of the secondary characters and plotlines. I stopped reading, till I found "Escape from Home" in the library, and quickly browsed through it to recall what had happened. before I resumed the second book.The story is well told, with short chapters focusing on different characters. Many of the characters and storylines from Lond [...]


    5. The voyage to America is filled with peril. The steerage holds reek with unwashed humanity. Laurence hides himself amongst the cargo at the bottom of the boat, and Patrick helps Laurence at the risk of his own safety. Mr. Clemspool is onboard with the pickpocket, Toby Grout, who stole Laurence’s money back in London. During the passage, they experience a terrible storm, and a shipboard epidemic kills many passengers in steerage. When the Robert Peel lands in Boston, Maura and Patrick devise a [...]


    6. A review from my old blog (for the whole series)I have to say that I was rather disappointed with the series. I guess it comes from reading a ton of other books written in the same era and written poorly.While these books were not written poorly neither did they sparkle and entertain. I almost know the end outcome of the books before I read more than a few chapters.Avi also dragged the plot of the books down with too many extraneous characters and subplot lines. For a children's book I had troub [...]


    7. I was surprised that even though this was the second in a series, it didn't use the first 3 chapters getting me caught up with what had already happened. It just picked up where it left off. Avi lets you experience the trip across the Atlantic in the 1850's and then see what Boston was like in those times. One conflict was the frustration they had with the Irish immigrants so I thought it was quite timely the way they showed the prejudice felt. Good story.


    8. Maura and Patrick have escaped the desperate poverty and danger of leaving home in Ireland to face even greater peril as they continue their daring voyage to the New World with their friend Laurence Kirkle. Aboard ship, they are crowded into the stench-filled pit of steerage, where they come face to face with illness and death, trying their best comfort and protect a small girl whose parents and brother died.


    9. I adore this series. They are not stand alone, and should really just be combined, I read an edition from the library that was two in one. Thank goodness! It flows so well that it's a shame they break it up where they do. Is it so people don't get scared off by the size? I recommend this to all who like historical fiction, this book was so real.Some language, mainly Jesus, Joseph and Mary.

    11. I learned much about the conditions of Irish immigration. I had no idea prejudice against Irish immigrants was so pernicious and malevolent. A good read for history, adventure, and an exploration into social movements and individual choice.




    12. Still love the series. All the comments I made for the first boook in this series apply here. Wonderful, wonderful read, and satisfying ending.


    13. The second half of this adventure was more thralling and I love how all of the characters' lives seem to intersect and entwine together. Six degrees of separation. Action pack with a pow!


    14. book two finds Patrick and his sister, along with Laurence and the rest, in America trying to make their way. but where is lord kirkle's money? What is Laurence's brother doing in America?


    15. I enjoyed this book, but it seems like one to only read once. While reading this series of books, I was able to get a very clear image in my mind of what everything looked like.



    16. This was a good book, but there was some disappointment with some of the ending. So I can't love this book, although I'm glad I read these two books.



    17. Read "The Escape Home" first, then Lord Kirkle's Money. Nonhistorical fiction book about the irish-american's hardship. Well written.


    18. The book was really good. I really liked the story it self it is the second book in the series the first was really good too didn't rate it because they don't the edition I read.
