Summary

Your feet will bring you to where your heart is.

Ireland 1846. With Ireland ravaged by famine and England unsympathetic to its plight, Kathleen Deacey faces a devastating choice - leave her country to find work or risk dying there. Despising the English for refusing to help Ireland, she crosses the ocean to support her family and search for her missing fiance.

But when her voyage goes awry, she must accept help from an English whaling captain, Jack Montgomery, who represents everything she despises - and with whom she is reluctantly falling in love. As Kathleen fights to save her family back in Ireland, she finds herself facing yet another devastating choice - remain loyal to her country or follow her heart.

Award-winning author Pamela Ford captures the anguish of a devastating period in Irish history and delivers a historical saga of hope, loyalty, the strength of the human spirit, and the power of love. With more than a half million copies of her books sold worldwide, she is known for creating stories that are emotional and moving.

This book takes you there.

"Hell had returned to Ireland" and It was up to Kathleen to save her desperate family from yet another famine. I was captivated by the well drawn characters and superb drama of this superbly told tale.

Beautiful story, beautifully read

What a wonderful and romantic story. The narrator’s voice was perfect for the reading. I had to keep driving so I could finish listening. Goodness, what a book!
