Nineteenth-century Ireland was a place of harsh suffering and haunting beauty, of famine and fortune, of tragedy and triumph. This rich, evocative novel captures the dreams of one extraordinary young woman who lived through those dark times—and found hope for the future....

Only fifteen when she married the local English landlord to save her family from financial ruin, Gracelin O'Malley has tried her best to be a dutiful wife, providing him with an heir. Despite her husband's escalating cruelty, Grace's spirit remains unbroken, though she is no longer the innocent country girl she once was. As famine devastates the land, and political unrest sweeps across the countryside, she harbors Irish rebels—her own brother among them—keeping hidden, as well, the deepest secret of her heart. And as disaster threatens those she loves most, Grace fights to keep them alive, her profound courage inspiring everyone around her....

"If you love the lilt of Irish laughter and understand the river of tears that runs beneath it, you'll take Gracelin O'Malley to your heart and keep her there after you've finished reading this beautiful book."—New York Times bestselling author Cathy Cash Spellman
