It is Ireland in the early 1950s and for Eilis Lacey, as for so many young Irish girls, opportunities are scarce. So when her sister arranges for her to emigrate to New York, Eilis knows she must go.

Arriving in a crowded lodging house in Brooklyn, Eilis can only be reminded of what she has sacrificed. And just as she takes tentative steps towards friendship, and perhaps something more, Eilis receives news which sends her back to Ireland. There she will be confronted by a terrible dilemma - a devastating choice between duty and one great love.

Ireland in the early 1950s: Eilis is moving to Brooklyn in hope for a better life. After a period of homesickness she meets Tony und begins to feel home. But a terrible message will send her back to Ireland and confront her with a big decision. A wonderful story about love and feeling home. One of my favorite books ever. / Cecilie
