Book Description
Ellie and John are childhood sweethearts. Marrying young, against their families` wishes, the couple barely survive the poverty of rural Ireland. When John is injured in the War of Independence, Ellie emigrates `for one short year` to earn the money for the operation which will allow him to walk again. Arriving in Jazz Age New York, Ellie is seduced by the energy and promise of America. When the year is up Ellie chooses to stay, returning to Ireland only when her father dies. A trunk full of treasures helps fuel Ellie`s American dream, but as the power of home and blood and old love takes hold she realizes that freedom isn`t the gift of another country, it comes from within.
