To Nora Kavanagh, the tiny Irish village of Killala is the only home she has ever known. But her home is being ravaged-first by the devastating Potato Famine of the mid- 1800's, then by the merciless absentee landlords who threaten to take over her family's one precious possession-the land. One after another, the fever brought on by the famine claims her husband, daughter, and closest friends, leaving Nora and her young son Daniel in immeasurable sorrow and poverty. Their single hope for the future lies with Morgan Fitzgerald, the love of Nora's youth. But his rebel activities with the Young Ireland movement keep him in constant danger. Morgan, a poet and wanderer, has never lost his wild and reckless ways, and all his good intentions may not be enough to save what remains of the Kavanagh family.
From the small Irish town of Killala to the towering skyscrapers of New York, this series follows two Irish families, the Kavanghs and the Fitzgeralds, whether holding firm to their faith during Ireland's darkest days or trusting God with new lives in America.
