Little Rose McGinley is just seven years old when her family is evicted from their Donegal home, victims of the Clearances of 1861. It is the first step in a long journey for Rose, one that takes her from Donegal to Kerry, and back again to the North. But the feisty girl blossoms into a woman of character with courage and the determination to keep her family together, against all the odds.
