Now a grandmother, Rose Hamilton has much to be thankful for in the steady love of her husband John and their relative prosperity. But she is concerned for her children: recently widowed, Sarah is burdened with grief; Sam, married to the cold Martha, is struggling to keep up with his large family. But it is the Easter Rising of 1916 that will make the greatest demand upon them all.
