Publisher's Summary

In mid-nineteenth-century Ireland, charming Kathleen and dashing Michael harbor secrets and dreams. Imagining a life beyond the kitchen and fields of the wealthy family they both work for, they plot to leave their homeland, marry, and raise the child Kathleen is secretly carrying. The luck of the Irish, however, is not on their side.
Soon, they find themselves swept up in circumstances they never could have fathomed. Kathleen is forced to marry against her will and immigrate to New Zealand. Michael is imprisoned for rebellion and exiled to Australia. As time passes and their new lives march on, they long for those stolen moments in the lush green fields of their native land. And they both still dream of escape, with no idea of how close fate will eventually bring them.

Classic "What Might've Been"

This has to be the most FRUSTRATING book I've ever read, though not necessarily in a bad way. Without giving too much of the story, the way fate circles these 2 is almost torture. I spent the entire book going crazy wondering how it would turn out. It certainly keeps your attention to the end! :-)

Stupid is as stupid does

I listened to the audio to the end hoping that like the tin man someone would find a brain.
