Paperback
Far away from her Irish home, Mary Freeman begins to adapt to life in Midwest America, but family turmoil and her own haunting memories threaten to ruin her future. It takes a crisis in her daughter's life -- and the encouragement of Sally, a plucky Southern transplant -- to propel Mary back to the rocky cliffs of her home in County Clare, Ireland. ^Watch the book trailer

- Publisher Mary Freeman's earliest memory has tainted her entire life: An old oaken table, moon-shaped faces guzzling bitter tea, cups and cups of the steaming stuff, asking what's to be done with the little eejit-her. Mary's life has taken her a long way from the family that didn't want her, and a long way from her Irish home, to the Midwest United States. Now married with two teenage daughters, Mary's loneliness and torment are as acute as ever.

Great book
5 stars By Lee Franklin, Dec 28 2008
Patti Lacy has crafted an endearing story in her debut novel. As one of Patti's critique partners, I've had the priviledge of watching Patti mature into one of the finest writers I know.

The book is the compelling, honest story of Mary, a woman who was torn from her family as a small child in Ireland and sent to live in America. 

It's rare to find a story based on factual happenings to really draw the reader in, but, Patti has done that here. I couldn't put the book down.
