Abstract:

In 1946 rural Ireland, Brideen Conway has her heart set on Kieran McDermot, but one thing stands in the way of their union. The couple can't afford to marry, and Kieran's curmudgeonly father won't pass down the family farm. Kieran faces the unpleasant possibility of leaving Brideen behind to find his fortune in England. The parish priest Father Donovan sets in motion a plot to see Brideen and Kieran wed. After all, so what if the dowry might change hands a few more times than is entirely usual, as long as the couple can tie the knot?
