Mary Freeman’s earliest memory has haunted her since childhood: An old oak table, bitter faces drinking bitter tea, a heated discussion of what’s to be done with the “little eejit” --- her. Now she is far removed from this family that didn’t want her, and separated from her native Ireland. Living in the United States heartland, Mary searches out fulfilling roles --- entrepreneur, wife, Christian, mother, community servant --- but her loneliness and torment remain as acute as ever.
A crisis in her youngest daughter’s life --- and the encouragement of Sally, a plucky Southern transplant --- propels Mary back to the rocky cliffs of her home in Country Clare, Ireland. Her harrowing journey unveils her tragic past, and forces her face-to-face with God.

"Patti Lacy’s ability to span multiple generations, and link two continents, helps readers explore the external setting o f a wild land while simultaneously studying the interiors of her characters’ hearts and minds. Solid storytelling."
