Eilis Lacey is unable to find a job in Ireland in the years following World War II. An Irish priest from Brooklyn, New York offers to sponsor her to live and work in America, so she decides she must go, leaving her mother and sister behind. She adapts to her new life by working in a department store, and the pain of parting subsides until she receives devastating news from home that threatens the promise of her future
