Books about Famine Immigration of Ulster Scots?

I have just finished reading "Paddy's Lament". It deals with the horrendous experiences of the Catholic population and their immigration to the U.S. in 1847.

My three Ulster families that immigrated between 1847 and 1850 were Presbyterians from the Antrim/Down area. In the above-mentioned book it is written that the Protestants had
a different experience during immigration and re-acclaimation to the US than did the Catholics.

I can only find books dealing with Ulster immigration in the 18th century. Does anyone know of literature that deals with the famine years?

Thanks, 'Genie
