Young Eilis Lacey dreams of life beyond the confines of her tiny Irish
village, but unlike her beautiful sister, Rose, Eilis' gifts are of a more
practical nature: she has a head for numbers, and is a loving and
dutiful daughter. Yet her ambition cannot be hidden and soon is noted
by the Parish Priest, Father Flood. Via a church contact, he arranges
for Eilis to travel to America where a job opportunity has arisen in
New York with a reputable "merchant of Italian origin".
It seems her dream is truly becoming a reality. But then fate
intervenes: a family crisis back home forces Eilis to make a choice
between the past and the future, the old world and the new.
