An enchanting romantic saga set in rural Ireland. Having abandoned his Irish roots to seek his fortune in London, John McHugh, now a wealthy property developer, returns to Co. Mayo to buy the beautiful but derelict Rathloe House. But his motives are regarded with suspicion by the local community, who band together in a campaign to save the Big House. With the villagers regarding him as a threat to their traditional way of life, and bitterly opposing his plans for modernisation, a chance encounter with advertising executive Susan Brown ensures that the sparks really begin to fly for John McHugh. Only one thing's for certain, life in the sleepy rural community of Rathloe is never going to be quite the same again.
