In 1920’s 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 in the United States and further afield; 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.
