It is the 1930s and when her beloved husband, John, suddenly dies, young Ellie Hogan decides to leave Ireland and return to New York. She hopes that the citys vibrancy will distract her from her grief. But the Depression has rendered the city unrecognisable - gone is the energy and party atmosphere that Ellie once fell in love with, ten years before.

All her passion and energy is poured into running a home and refuge for the homeless. Until, one day, someone she thought shed never see again steps through her door. It seems that even the Atlantic isnt big enough to prevent the tragedies of the past catching up with her...
