Rated 5 out of 5 by from You will love this book Lucy Black has done it again with a wonderful novel. A surprising love story spanning Ireland to Canada in the 1870's. Eleanor is a wonderfully headstrong woman establishing herself in a very different world than her privileged upbringing in Ireland.
