Bright Maguire, vivacious and kind, befriends Nat and introduces him to her large Irish family. She shows him the warmth, affection and, later, the love he has never had. And she will do anything for him... Nat's burning ambition is to make his fortune, and he is willing to travel the world and back, risking everything, to achieve it - even if it means leaving behind a legacy of suffering and tragedy which Bright must survive alone.
