General Notes Originally published: London: HarperCollins, 2001.
Summary Note Widowed by Ireland's Great Famine, Ellen Rua O'Malley flees to Boston. With her are Patrick and Mary, her two surviving children and the "silent girl", rescued from the hordes of the dispossessed. Boston in the 1850s is the best place for a woman to be and there, awaiting Ellen, are the stability of a new life and Lavelle, the man who loves her. Desperate to shake off the Old World, Ellen is driven by her own demons to put everything at risk - and Boston, on the brink of Civil War, seems to mirror her own conflict and battle for survival.
