Overview

Betrayed by their homeland, the English, and the Catholic Church, the OâDwyer family of four brothers and a sister is torn apart and forced to flee early-nineteenth-century Ireland one by one. Their search for one another and their struggle to restore the family while spread over three countries challenge them to retain their faith and belief in the future.
All four brothers are in love with lovely Marie Foley, and their feelings for her tear them further apart. Even Declan, the youngest, who has the âgift of sight,â never envisioned that within a year, cattle would be grazing where their home stood, his parents buried near Ringrone Castle, and the village destroyed. How could he have known Liam would be whisked out of the country with English soldiers on his heels or that Donal would destroy his life with drink? Could he have known that Niall would desert them and become a success on his own?
