For two years, Abigail O'Dare had worked as companion to wealthy Mrs Winstanley, sending money home to her widowed mother and siblings in County Kerry. After receiving a distressing letter from her mother about the terrible potato famine, Abigail leaves her employment and the man she secretly loves - Mrs Winstanley's handsome nephew, Roger - to try and help her poverty-stricken family. But what of her dreams? Would she ever be able to find happiness and the love she longed for?
