Having escaped the famine that ravages their beloved Ireland, Nora Kavanagh and her son Daniel begin the difficult process of building a new life for themselves in America. Befriended by the wealthy Farmingtons and supported by the constant friendship of the injured Englishman, Evan Whittaker, Nora nevertheless finds herself caught in a conflict of the heart. Michael Burke, the strong, competent Irish policeman, desperately wants to keep his promise to his best friend Morgan Fitzgerald that he will marry Nora and take care of her. But something in Nora resists his proposal, and she must decide whether to give in to Michael's urgings or find a different direction. Can she trust her heart? In the midst of Nora's personal struggle, the heartaches from the old country continue to plague her. Will she ever overcome her grief and find peace?

I fell in love with these characters and the story. My only complaint is that the series ended. I felt the characters had room to grow and I wanted to know what was going to happen in their lives next!
