Late 1960's in Tullamore, County Offaly, and Fiona Tracey is preparing to leave Ireland to work for a wealthy family in New York. Fiona's parents have the local shop and bar, and her younger sisters are already leading independent lives. Bridget is at a convent school preparing to be a nun and Angela has led a life of her own since she was hospitalised up in Dublin for years with childhood polio. Then, sudden tragedy forces Fiona to postpone her departure for New York. As her mother sinks into illness and depression, her responsibilities mount. As summer approaches, an American architect, Michael O'Sullivan, takes a room above the bar. Within a short time Fiona finds herself involved in an unexpected and passionate affair. Then, as a surprising incident threatens Bridget's vocation, Angela uncovers information which explodes old family secrets.
