The time is ripe for the hunt for missing Irish ancestors to begin. A present-day research journey fraught with obstacles, seeming almost purposeful in nature and insurmountable at times, is undertaken with a determination that will leave no stone unturned before the truth is known.
Simultaneously, in 1889 the historic saga of Rose, the girl from Donegal, her plans to lead a new life in America and those who touch her along the way, unfolds in parallel with the uncovering of family history puzzles. She will come to learn life is never so simple and straight-forward as were the dreams that set the plans in motion in the first place.
Twists and turns abound around every corner in finally reaching The Way Back Home ~ Finding Rose, where each mystery solved and each bend in the road taken leads to another challenge in unraveling the complete story, spanning the Atlantic Ocean from Ireland to New York, onto the South and from there to California and beyond.
