From the Back Cover:

On the northern coast of Ireland, young Mary O’Malley embraces a drowning sailor washed ashore by the tide. So begins her family saga. Fleeing the great famine, she migrates across the Atlantic, through quarantine sheds and over the inhospitable land of the Canadian Shield. Her descendants trek from Port Hope to Montreal, from Ottawa to a house on the shore of Lake Ontario. Now Esther O’Malley Robertson, the last of the O’Malley women, is on the move.
