A young Irish girl of good family, caught between the requirement to conform and the desire to be free. Destined for the convent or perhaps wealthy spinsterhood and companionship to an elderly aunt, she finds herself held captive by her own actions on a road to the unknown. Fleeing a lynching, the life she could have had in tatters, she leaves her beloved Ireland behind for the cold Ogden Moors of Lancashire and a new life she must build for herself from nothing.

It is a story of how often women, in a moment of naivete and passion, choose love over themselves.. It is a story most women enacted throughout the 20th Century and it continues still. Women will never have the freedom and equality they seek whilst they bear children and are held fast by the overwhelming love and sense of obligation it brings. They exchange freedom and dreams for what?... for family.
