Romantic historical saga. Elle brought up by strict parents in Ireland meets John as childhood sweethearts. They marry very young and John is injured in the War of Independence. He needs money for an operation and Ellie hears from a friend who is now working in America as a maid asking her to join her. She emigrates for only one year to make enough money for the operation. However once in America she sees how good a life they could have and asks John to join her. He doesn't and it is only when her dad is dying that she returns to Ireland and sees John again. She never goes back to America. Lovely romantic story. I enjoyed this book
