Ellis Island
(Kate Kerrigan)
Ellie Flaherty falls in love with John Hogan when she's 8 and he's 10. An only child in a loveless family living near Kilmoy, Ireland, Ellie treasures the warmth of John's home. When at 18 she gives up her planned religious vocation to marry, Ellie is shunned by her parents but sustained by John's love as they eke out a living on his farm. But when conflict arises between Britain and Ireland, John joins the IRA and is wounded, needing an operation to walk again. Ellie's best solution is to go to America in 1920 to earn the money they need. Starting as a socialite's maid, she trains as a typist and comes to enjoy the comforts and excitement of life in New York. When John won't leave his beloved Ireland, she must choose between the freedom and luxury of America, where a man from a moneyed family falls in love with her, and the still-primitive conditions on the farm of the husband she still loves after three years of separation.
