Maura Deverell has no wish to obey her cruel landlord's command to marry his crippled son Liam. She cannot even understand why the rich and powerful Riordans want her, a humble peasant girl, in their family. Then she is brutally raped by Liam's brother Padraig, who gloats that once she is under their roof, Maura will be at his mercy - his sexual slave. Maura's mother will not let this vicious act go unavenged. She curses the Riordans and then, on her deathbed, exacts a promise from her daughter to leave the shores of her beloved Ireland for good. Maura's exile to the harsh industrial poverty of Birmingham is fraught with dangers. Even when she makes staunch friends, and discovers a protector in the shape of Aiden Shanley, Maura cannot help remembering the land of her birth and what might have been . . .
