She returns to 'investigate a true story about a relationship so passionate that it burned its way across the barriers of class and culture a scandalous affair between the wife of an English landlord and an Irish servant during the devastation of Ireland's potato famine. While back in Ireland, she meets a lover of her own who presents her with a choice that promises to alter the course of her life. As she moves toward her decision, she calls on the strengths of her identity as a woman, an Irish woman, and a woman who is no longer young. Meanwhile, she brings the story of the long-ago lovers to a denouement as tender as it is tragic.
