Overview

Life is good for Nancy Cavanaugh. She's happily married with three young children and one on the way. The only serious rift between her and her husband, Connor, is a debt-ridden farm in Ireland that Connor inherited from his father. He has dreams of one day going back there to work the farm and raise their children there. But Nancy wants no part of it.
Then tragedy strikes. Just four days after the baby is born, Connor is killed in an accident and Nancy's life is abruptly turned upside down. Then, a second blow--a letter letter from Connor's sister, stating she intends to take over the farm. The farm is Connor's legacy to his children and she will not allow it to be taken away from them. She will fight for the farm through the Irish courts. But, there's one problem--she'll have to go back to Ireland to do it.
Then World War II interrupts her plans, Like millions of other American women, Nancy goes to work in a factory for the duration of the war. When the war ends, she books passage. Just before she sets sail, Neil, Connor's best friend, asks her to marry him. Stunned by this sudden proposal, she promises to give him an answer when she comes home.
In Ireland she meets Sean Garrett, a childhood sweetheart, further complicating her feelings for Neil. As the fight for the farm makes its way through the courts, Nancy knows she will be forced to make a wrenching decision if she wins. Keep the farm and raise the children there, or go back to the states.
For Neil and Sean, the two men who love her, her decision means everything.
