In 1920s Ireland, a whirlwind romance ends in pain, heartbreak, and poverty for one young woman. This pain will echo down through generations of sons and daughters, brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers, leaving the family broken and scattered.

This is the story of Kitty, a girl who suffered throughout her life and yet managed to grow into a strong independent woman. It is also the story of the Irish diaspora: the lives, loves and losses of the thousands who left their homes and families behind to seek their fortune abroad. But most importantly, it is the story of a family.
