After heartbreaking tragedy, can she face the challenges of her new life?

Molly O'Connor's life was not an easy one. With six children and a husband who earned what he could it was a constant struggle to keep her family fed and raised to be respectable.

Of all her children, Breda - the Bright One - was closest to her heart. As, one by one, her other children left Kilbally, so Breda, the youngest, was the one who stayed close to her parents, saying she never wanted to leave the West of Ireland.

When tragedy strikes the O'Connors and the structure of their family life is irrevocably changed, Breda decides to make a new life for herself - in Yorkshire with her Aunt Josie's family.

There she discovers a totally different world from the one she has left behind, with new people and new challenges for the future.
