Star By Star

Sheena Wilkinson

(Little Island)

Towards the end of WWI, Stella returns to Northern Island following the death of her suffragette mother from ‘Spanish’ influenza. Stella is inspired by her mother and her suffragette heroines to change the world, but is impatient. She has to learn that history is made person by person, and vote by vote.

Star by Star‘ is an engrossing story that packs a punch. It packs a lot in too- from women’s suffrage, Irish independence, the spectre of illness, to the impact of the Great War. It is an excellent read, full of very well drawn characters. We recommend this great book to readers aged from 12 years.
