Like so many young girls growing up in the poverty-stricken West of Ireland in the 1930's Roisin Keavney loves her family but dreams of a wealthy husband and a better life.
In defiance of her father's wishes she escapes the tensions within her family by fleeing to the sea shore where she encounters the older, mysterious Tom McCafferty. Could he be the one?
Over the next few years her daydreams and fantasies collide with the harsh realities of life during her turbulent coming of age.
Roisin's Song is told in an absorbing blend of Maeve Binchy's gentle storytelling style coupled with Frank McCourt's poignant realism.
