Summary
Sweethearts since childhood, Ellie Hogan and her husband, John, are content on their farm in Ireland -- until John, a soldier for the Irish Republican Army, receives an injury that leaves him unable to work. Forced to take drastic measures in order to survive, Ellie does what so many Irish women in the 1920s have done and sails across a vast ocean to New York City to work as a maid for a wealthy socialite. Once there, Ellie is introduced to a world of opulence and sophistication, tempted by the allure of grand parties and fine clothes, money and mansions . . . and by the attentions of a charming suitor who can give her everything. Yet her heart remains with her husband back home. Now Ellie faces the most difficult choice she will ever have to make: a new life in a new country full of hope and promise, or the return to a life of cruel poverty . . . and love
