Summary

Mary Kate Malone has escaped from Ireland to seek her fortune in Liverpool, but from the beginning, things go wrong, and now she is living a secret life in the shadows, with tragedy looming.

Mary Kate Malone has come to Liverpool from Ireland to seek her fortune, but from the very beginning things have gone wrong. Now she is living secretly with her great love, Dr Nicholas Marcus, while his wife, Lavinia, mother of his two sons, plots her revenge on the girl she believes has destroyed her marriage. When disaster strikes, Mary Kate's first instinct is to flee to her family in Ireland. But back in Tarabeg, a charismatic American stranger has set the village by the ears, and it isn't the place Mary Kate remembers any more. 

To add to her problems, Dr Gaskell and Matron from St Angelus Hospital have come to Tarabeg to recruit nurses, and Mary Kate's Liverpool life comes back to haunt her with a vengeance.
